To Sell or Not to Sell. That is the question

Okay here's the deal, alot of you dont see me post up much, but Im sure you have seen my ride up on the threads once in a while. I have a dilema at the moment. Back in September I crashed my car, some D*ck wod ate the stop sign and I hit his passenger fender side. Ok my front damage is minimal engine is fine still starts up and all. The radiator and support is bent which is being fixed as we speak ( I let it sit for awhile). Right now Im not sure if I should keep the car due to the front damage. I know its being repaired but I had a car in the past and after the repair it was not the same. I got an offer for the car $10,800 crashed the way it is. But Im losing out, cuz my interior was $2000 alone, Im not even going to count the rest of the work. I owe the bank 7000. So im at a pause. Should I go with the sale and loose out, or give it a shot and keep the car.
Opinions wanted. I hate to sell her, thats my baby, ( i call her my daughter..lol) girls alway ask you have a daughter and I say yep Ill pick you up with her..lol.
Any way let me know what ya think. One

G35 is a sweet ride, but dont know about paying 400 for 5yrs. I dont think Im trying to get into another bind of payments. Rather invest in a house. But maybe another ride would be cool. Thanks for the feed back. What part of your ride was hit?

So how much would it cost to get it fixed? As long as its mechanically sound, the rest is cosmetic. If the its running fine, I'd keep it especially since you havr alot invested and sentimental reasons. This is assuming it doesnt cost alot to repair.

I would just keep it since the damage isn't that bad. Just make sure they repair everything the right way. It should be fine.

Thats a good point, being that I invested so much on it. Im getting it done for 1800. i bought the fenders, bumpers and lights. They are doing the frame work and repainting the whole car. If it looks good I think I might end up keeping it. Trade in Value is worth **** so thats definately outta the question.

Damage sounds like nothing from what you have described. I'd keep it till it's paid off.
