Front end opps now what?

Was raining pretty good yesterday and was coming off the interstate, backend slid out and front end hit a guard rail... Not majr damage car is still drivable. But Passanger headlight is cracked, still works fine, front bumper, fender and hood will need to be replaced. It is a 2009 e92 m-sport. (sig)

Looking at my options:
1. m3 rep bumper and m3 rep hood? Saw some on m0db4rga1ns
2. M-tech bumper and carbon fiber hood painted.
3.??? open to other suggestions.

Not really finding anything that is jumping out.
I want to stay clean and classy.
M3 hood may add some functionality with the vents and my DCI.
I don't think I want to do big vents and I think I prefer the style of the msport bumper over the m3.

any guidence?

Similar thing happen to me a few weeks ago. I got a cracked fender and scratched bumper, my insurance gave me enough for a vented hood a new fender and to repaint my whole front end and roof

Sorry to hear about the accident James, glad you're ok. That's the important thing. Have you considered a V style hood? It's what I use on my car and I personally feel it allows better air flow to my DCI than stock.

Very minimal damage and only my pride and ego were hurt. I have an appointment tomorrow to see what kind of number insurance is going to give me.

Decisions are hard. Probably going to end up at oem msport for the bumper, I like the m3 hood but it would probably make more sense with an m3 bumper.
