Hey, nasty accident but you're safe, which is the most important thing. Accidents happen.

That looks like somewhere in the region of $8K to $10K would be my guess. New headlamp, new bumper alone would already be in the $4,000 range. They may try to use a "recycled" bumper. The aluminum fender (I think it's aluminum) would cost probably another $1000, maybe more since it's aluminum.

Kidney grills, fog lamps, will try to be taken off your old car and re-used. Don't know if the parktronic sensors and fog lamp cords were ripped off in the accident, but the wiring may need to be replaced.

I would be surprised if it were totaled, the car is worth in the $15,000 range (assuming regular options and mileage) so it shouldn't be totaled from this accident. But I'm not an expert so I can't say for certain.
