Ouch.
Go through your insurance.
There are so many little clips, bolts and nuts that will add to the cost. That hood seems too damaged at the leading edge to be repaired.

If you have a choice between the two years I would tend to go for the 2012 as well. Some 2011 problems were ironed out by 2012 and, depending on mileage, there may be more warranty left on the 2012....

Don't feel chicken. You opened it up in the best place in the world---the 'track'. I loved that I thought I heard your turn signal clicking in the second video.

Above posters are correct about mirrors.
Speeds are:
You can fold in -- up to 15mph/20km/h
Folded mirror automatically unfolds at 25mph/40km/h
No mention in manual on how to override.

I take my car in dirty, insist they not wash it and have visual evidence if they ever screw up since obviously the car will be clean. So far, they have respected my wishes since 2004.
