Hey guys i got into a car accident today and need a new front bumper, grill, fog light glass, and a plate bracket. Do you think i should switch over to the 2011 bumper and grill? Also does anyone know the part # for the foglight glass cover? Thanks for your help. I can't believe i got into an accident, she's only 1yr old :dunno:

Doesn't the insurance company have a say in this? You could ask them, but then they may say 'no'. Unless you are paying for it out of your pocket.

A generic response to your question is:

No, an _insurance company_ has no say. Their obligation is to pay (reimburse) the insured for covered loss/damage (less deductible). The insured can then do what he/she wants with the proceeds. For example, one can choose to pocket the insurance check and not repair the damage, or one can do the repair work themselves, or one can pay a shop to repair the damage. If the damage is not repaired, it obviously won't be covered in future claims, if any.

If the car is financed, the _bank_ does have a controlling interest in the nature of the repair work, and usually does require that the car be restored to pre-accident condition.
