new front end???

ok so today my brother was taking my car to get something done while i was at school and he nailed some idiot that ran a red (he had been stopped but didnt wanna wait) and basically all im not replacing is my right headlight and right fender.

should i just put it back to stock with the tyc's like i had or should i go for an rsx conversion or a 05 civic conversion. the list goes on i suppose but what do you guys suggest? and where do they sell good conversions (trying to avoid a honda dealer)
or should i push for the insurance to total it and look for another car around 9k$ (used)
any suggestions about carbon fiber hood? (not my favorite thing on a black car tho)

thanks

I dont know much about insurance claims, but I doubt that they would write you a 9,000 dollar check for a little front end damage. Furthermore, the more money the insurance company gives you, the more you can expect to pay every month. Also, if your deductable is high you might want to just pay for the damages yourself and avoid getting insurance involved all together. Anyway, I would say just fix the headlight for now and look around for a good deal on a front end kit that you like.No point rushing your decision as long as your car is still driveable.

ive never seen an el

i know alot about insurance... i dont have to pay a deductable because it was the other persons fault.. which is why i also wont be paying more money everymonth and i know the insurance company well so i could push for the check enough to get it because there is more damage than i made it sound like. my dad owns a shop so i am doing the work anyways. my car isnt driveable (it is fine driveable wise but legally i cant because one headlight is smashed bad

EL more than an RSX. No Acura 1.7 EL's in the states right? Be original. Look at Tellys car, imagine that but coupe.

i was looking at that one... i think it looks alot like rsx... not worth the extra money it would be to import the parts from a dealer in canada or europe plus its from a dealer
