I wrecked my front end this morning! Damnit! Anyone know a GOOD body shop in or close to Reston? I messed up my right headlight, bumper, and hood. The ran into the backside of a pickup truck going about 15mph. The dude faked me. There was a right on red at Baron Cameron and Leesburg Pike. The other guy made like he was going to pull out to make the right turn. I turned my head to see if it was ok for me to go and it seemed like it was. So, I gas before I look back straight and BAM! Right into his rear end. USAA auto insurance should help me. So, again...anyone know a good bodyshop in or close to Reston, Virginia?

Yeah, thats what I hear. This is my first fender bender, so any info you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated. ****. I'm 27 and I got my first fender bender. Must be kinda lucky. I guess the rain doesn't really help though.

Sorry to hear about that. Nismo V2 & '06+ Bi-HIDs coming your way?
Haha, ya know, that would be nice. I doubt it though. Those Bi-HIDs can be pricey. If I go to the right shop, I'll see if I can work out something being that the insurance will be paying for in anyways. How ould I go about getting these through the body shop though?

The body shop need to total out the part and mention it would be cheaper to replace with Bi-Hids andV2 Bumper. IE: My Evo was hailed on. The body shop totaled my OEM Evo hood and from Mitsu cost $1200. However I had them order a Seibon CF OEM hood for $600 and they wrote me a check for the remaining $600.

Hmmm. I'm not up on my $$$ figures, but how much would the V2 and Bi-Hid lights cost vs the stock lights and bumper? Also, I only mess up one light. and the light is still in working condition. it's just dislodged from the housing.
