Start by taking it to a qualified body shop and getting an estimate for both the damage you can see, and what is hidden.

It is nearly impossible to qutoe an accurate estimate based upon two pictures............

Even if the vehicle is inspected by qualified persons there is often hidden damage once they get deeper into it.

It looks like this is at least an 06 4S, so the car undamaged is probably in the $55 to $65,000 range.

Damage on both sides, in the least it looks like ca: $10,000 IF no extensive bending of the chassis....that quarter panel will definately need to be replaced...and there may be damage to the l/r suspension, in addition to the r/f...good time to upgrade the front bumper however....

Definately worth salvaging I would think..

UNFORTUNATELY this car will probably bear a SALVAGE TITLE for the rest of its life.

I'd say you're probably going to get about 10k to do it right. I see that the wheel is changed so we have to assume to old one is bent or broken. If it was hit with enough force to trash the wheel, you're going to be dealing with replacing a lot of the front end suspension. There's also a decent chance that those mounting points are not out of whack on the frame.

This one seems pretty risky. if you're going to get into it make sure you deal really hard so you can sell it as salvage (someone can part it out) if it's not straight.

Please reply to let us know if you do have it looked into.

I've seen this particular car on some of the online listings and I'm curious myself.
