Question Head Gasket Job Rate/Cost?

I was quoted at my local dealership ~$1500 to do the head gaskets on my 2.5 NA (SOHC) including parts & labor, and they said they send the heads off for machining. They would completely R&R the engine for this, and do the timing belt for cost of parts as it is off anyway.

I was told also that for warranty work (like low-mileage HG failures), they can do it quickly with the engine still on the car and do not do any machine work...I have heard anywhere from $500 to $1000 for this.

Any one have either one done at the dealer, and what was the cost and average turnaround time? Cost at an Independent shop?

My car was sideswiped by a Semi on Thursday, damage not too terrible, and I am debating on keeping it or not, and at 199525 miles I may just do a HG job along with timing belt, but need to look at cost depending on how much they give me for repairs and whether they declare a Total Loss or not.
