Holy freakin' crap!!! There are sooooo many Subys that are busted!!!

This is crazyness. I'd say it's time for a new bumper facia. How's the fender? Any other damage? Actually looks like it's still straight. I would say either look for a used Silver front bumper and do it yourself, or get a new one, have it paint matched and put it on. You can probably find instructions somewhere on this site.

those guys are probably the best damn body shop in colorado. But very pricey, however for the quality of work they do, they deserve to charge whatever they want

I am sorry about the suby.
My suby got rearended recently too :-(. I posted asking for a good shop, and http://www.motorsport-concepts.com/ was the recommanded shop. I got my estimate at Auto Body Specialists. They seem like a good shop, but no one knows about them. Insurance companies recommand that shop. I found a website that lists car shops that have an I-CAR GOLD CLASS sign. It's suppose to mean that they use the best techniques for repair.

After having gone through over 10,000$ in repair from an accident that was someone elses fault, do NOT go with a private body shop. Go with a body shop the insurance company recommends and is a "partner" with, and here is the ONE reason why... Basically if things are NOT up to snuff the insurance company will get it fixed, period. If you go with any body shop (as you are legally entitled to do) if things are not fixed up to snuff or if you have any problems you are responsible for dealing with the body shop, not the insurance company.

Don'tr get me wrong, if i were doing something after market and spending my own money i'd go to the best place I could afford, but when it's on the inusnrace's bill i assure you they want it fixed as best as possible to minimize any dimished value claim you might have....

Thanks Rancid, Good luck with the car too. Check to see if your bumper beam or the things that hold it didn't bend.
The Auto Body Specialist, Inc shop told me the same thing that ZMW said. I am probably going to end up going to them. They seem like a really good shop. They said that they can get all the dents and scratchs out too, for a good price. They also told me that they can do aftermarket stuff(I am thinking of getting them to paint the sideskirts, and getting JDM Taillights put in instead of the broken ones). I got an appointment set up on Mon. They said it would take one week. I'll let everyone know if they did a good job.

There is this one body shop that I didn't like. I forgot the name though. It's not too far from Countyline. Someone at the dealership, bent the things the hold the bumper beam. I went to that bodyshop by countyline to get it fixed, but they didn't do a good job. It seems like they didn't finish aligning. I'll try and find the name.
