Unhappy Damage Control.. Looking for Advise

Had a run in with a pole yesterday... so not my best day... car runs fine and everything else is good but does anyone know if this can be fixed at a body shop? The front bumper is just peeling so i think that can just be repainted... the front right quarter panel cracked so i think that will have to be replaced... the hood has a pretty deep gash in it but I think it might be able to be worked out?.. the door is is pretty bad as you can see...
can a bodyshop fix it to where it doesnt look bad or am i going to have to replace everything?
any thoughts on $?
sorry for the bad grammar.. not really in the mood to put forth much effort

Also if anyone knows a good shop in the Dallas area.

Looks like a ~$10k fix. (bumper, hood, door, sideskirt, fender + labor + paint).

i have to ask, how do you "have a run in with a pole" ?

I'm going to assume DSC was OFF.

Good luck with the repairs though.

Looks major to me ... 10K to 12K for sure. Perhaps check with the dealer ... if you trade and they get it fixed you be better off? just thinking out loud.

How did you do this ... slide off the road on wet pavement in a curve?

Good luck to you let us know how you make out in the end.

Sorry to see, that doesn't look cheap...due to the creases, looks some replacements are in order. GL with getting it back in shape, hope it all works out.
...just enjoying life.

Trade up your bumper and hood to Arkym or other better mod bits while you're at it. The OEM cost to fix the whole deal will be high enough to justify it IMO.

Sorry to see it and hope the car gets back to normal soon.

probably $500 to repaint each panel. If the hood is dented then you need a new one at ~$1200. New front bumper, new door, and fix side skirts. I think you'll be like in the 8-10k range.

First thing I thought after seeing those pictures was a drift gone bad. If it was weather related I would report it through your insurance and just pay the deductible. That's what insurance is for assuming it was a legit accident. Paying out of pocket to have it all fixed would put any sane person into a state of depression. Hope you get it all sorted out soon.
