Unhappy Just crashed my baby, looking to get aftermarket bumpers, fenders, ground fx. (Pics)

Hey everyone-
I was in NH last weekend and spun my baby off the road in order to avoid getting creamed by another car. Hit some nasty jagged rock, a road sign, went off the road and crashed into a snowbank and ditch.

Now for the good news, I've got a client that is a body shop that is doing all the work. My car is going to need a new bumper, new fender and sideskirts and I get the option of getting some aftermarket stuff instead of OEM. Since the OEM stuff is just around the same price as the aftermarket I'm grinning from ear to ear because this looks like the perfect way to get some more parts for my ride and have the insurance company pay for the repairs.

I need some ideas here guys, I was looking at the euro bumpers on Focus Sport but I know there is more out there. I just don't know where to look, and that is where you guys come in!

So please, help me out here. I need to order up some parts for the body shop and spend this insruance check! Any links to stuff I can buy or online catalogs would be greatly appreciated. I need to get a sweet new front bumper for this car!

Enjoy the pics of the accident, thankfully I was allright.

Here's where the door took the brunt of a sign as I was skidding sideways.

No, that's not me getting into the car. They had to winch it out of a ditch... Not good.

Ouch Dave! Did your airbags go off or anything? I assume not...

So insurance didn't total it... probably not a boatload of structural damage, like suspension and stuff?

I'm glad you're keeping it!! And also glad that despite shitty circumstances you get some nice goodies for it at the same time.

Some of the FS bumpers are nice, are you able to salvage the rear bumper? If so, definitely don't go over the top on the front one or you'll look goofy. I think this bumper from BATinc.net is nice see green car on page 2 If the link doesn't work click over to the Exterior PDF page. Or, if the insurance check covers it, you could get this one from Germany.

Then you could maybe get SVT side skirts or possibly these ones with Z3 fenders?

Check out in the Member FAQ Forum the sticky for Exterior Mods, there's a horde of sites there.

I have a Wings West Front Bumper and would trade your stock rear bumper for my avenger rear if you are interested? Can't Ship though.

I see that you already have the SVT wheels and other SVT stuff... you could continue with the SVT bumpers and side skirts. Or the Focus RS kit.

Thankfully the airbag didn't go off. They are putting the car on a lift tonight, they are pretty sure that I did a ton of suspension damage. Fantastic!
