Default 2001 Impreza L | WRX swapped | lightweight daily driver project

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.

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.
