Not so good Christmas present

My brother hit a wooden fence going about 30 and wrecked my front bumper, grilles, hood, scratched and dented passenger side fender and managed to screw up my axle or suspension. I had to get it towed to a lot and am now waiting for tommorrow to get my car into a shop. My front right tire is about 30 degrees off and is loose as all hell.

I would like to make this into a little bit less sh***y Christmas by getting an m3 or aero front bumper and maybe a new hood. I have never been in an accident so I'm looking at how this goes down with the local auto shop and my insurance company and need some suggestions on how to get this instead of the stock front end. I have Allstate and full coverage if that makes a difference.

P.S on a side note I would also like any reccomendations for a good local shop is SW florida. Thank you for your assistance

Buy some Jim Beam and get drunk with your brother and laugh about it until morning, then see what you want to do then.
Why not enjoy your Christmas?

+1, terrible to see that happen, but it happened so may as well try to have a good time until tomorrow. OP seems to have that attitude though, hope the rest of your day goes great man, your car will emerge a better machine in the end!

Bump... Does anyone have any advice for getting an aftermarket front end? The car will be delivered to a shop of my choosing tommorrow at 8:00 a.m and I would like any help in deciding what to do and which shop to take my car.

You can get any front end you want. If it costs more than the factory replacement you will just pay the diffrence.
