So.......on Monday I dropped the bumper off for paint. They called me yesterday saying it was ready, and I was going to pick it up today.
But.....unfortunately......yes terday I got into an accident. Wasn't my fault, no one was seriously hurt, and everyone had insurance.
I'll update once the insurance adjuster dude comes out, but it doesn't look good. L models aren't worth much, so it could easily be totaled out. Engine sounded a bit funky, so I'm thinking it jumped timing.....I'll diagnose the engine this weekend. Suspension on that corner also got messed up.

ouch hope the engines okay... the car my ej205 came from was in a front end accident exactly like yours but worse, on the drivers side and it jumped timing, but after i redid timing with a new belt everything was fine, no damage...
I was going around 40mph and someone coming from the opposite direction tried turning left too late (crossing my path of travel) and I didn't have enough time avoid him. I was on the brakes hard and swerved to the left....just hitting their rear passenger corner. Could have been MUCH worse.....like head on, or directly into their side.

I agree, it can definitely be fixed, but unfortunately the car isn't worth much to the insurance companies. Air bag stuff alone will be a lot....plus all the body and suspension stuff. I'll probably have to buy it back from them.
If it's totaled out by insurance I'll try to swap everything over to a new shell....either that, or get a bugeye wrx.
