Unfortunately it was my fault rather than the tyres (which I've had no issues with) I pulled out into the path of an oncoming car.

The car didn't lose any fluids (or me!) but it has shunted the front end over a bit as the radiator supports are on an angle.

If you go new ....

Bumper will be 500
lights are 750 a side IIRC from Honda
Wing probably another 400
wheel / hub / suispension arm - 400

And that's before 'bits' labour and VAT so Nott is probably about right.

If you want to keep it, 2nd hand / DIY is the way to go and most of what you've broken is bolt off / on. I'd want to make sure you didn't bend the chassis rails though.

Easily done. Plod says 'if you cannot see, don't go' in their usually glib manner. But what if you cannot reverse either - lock it there and buy a new car?

Yes, you'll need someone with an alignment table to give it a tug straight.

Rest ought to be bolt-ons.
