Sooo sad...
long story short...i got in an accident and both airbags are deployed. im ok thought but my gf got a swollen cheek from the airbag. anyone know how much this would cost??? its just the bumper, radiator, headlight miss aligned and fog other than that everything is good. I'm surprised my headlights didnt break or crack. here's some pix...

damn dude sorry to hear what happened... how did it happen?
and i hope your girl gets better.

i would atlest think... your best bet is to get a body kit or just a non stock front bumber because it would cost less then stock...that would cost $1500 paint and all your raditor should run $350 and i over guess.. headlights reaimed... i dont know do it yourself

damn good thing no one was hurt bad. what did you hit? shouldnt cost that much to fix but then again gts_drew is right. should just get a body kit while you're at it. the headlights never break

unlike the other guys said, its gonna cost you ALOT if you do it urself. you gotta report this to the insurance or else you gonna pay lots of money. this is a 3000$ job probably. you forgot how expensive airbags are

wut you can and cant do with the insurance is a long big story and a process. just goto ur bodyshop (hopefully you have one) and tell em wut you can do in order to get ur car fixed and with an aftermarket kit. im pretty sure theyll take care of that

sorry to see that do you have insurance? if not here is something to help
Here is a raditor on ebay
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayIS...;category=33602

It also looks like the driver side headlight is damaged, the mounting tabs are probaly broken in 1 or 2 spots so you might want to look at that. there is a set of Headlight in mint condition on ebay if you would like I will give you the link.

Wow, so sorry; good thing no ones hurt. Everyone says redoing airbags is expensive. Keep us up to date on how it goes.

wat you should do is upgrade everything . if you dont like ur car lights change them just tell ur auto shop to lie to ur insurance companny. and they would bc they get more money from ur insurance company. get new everything . bodykit, tinted windows,rims, tires and if you want to get a body kit just get one . and tell ur auto shop to overcharge you on other bills so they wont have to include body kit, rims ... on the insurance bill

u can also claim you suffered interior dmg and guess what you just got a free interior design.
use ur insurance company
bc if you do it right being in car crash with insurance and not getting injured is like winning the lottery wink

If the total equals 75% of his car's value they would just total it.

Also isn't the more you claim...the higher they will raise rates.

(The above is my opinion and guessing)

dude, your insurance is better off getting you an aftermarket body kit - which is more cheaper than having it replaced with an OEM part.

suggests several aftermarket products that could be used to replace your damaged ones - front bumper, radiator.

This WILL save you a lot with your insurance. Buying OEM parts or requesting expensive parts and labor could increase your rates - not to mention other things.

Glad to know youre safe. thumbsup

I slid my car into a curb sideways. $1500 damage. Not worth claiming on insurance as the rates would rape me after. But something big like your crash I'd get it fixed by insurance.
