    Wow that sucks! It looks like you broke all of the stuff that would cost a good buck to replace, so are you doing aftermarket OEM stuff or real aftermarket parts? I would get a new style bumper and valance, some nice fog lights and a nice set of projector headlights. New grille with a nice insert, and maybe a new bowtie for good measure. Hope the insurance company gives you a good chunk of money for the damage, hope it all works out for you.
