    Doesn't look good, man. I'd say $4,000 if you're lucky... My brother works at a shop around here in NJ, but we're way south of Princeton.

    Most likely not. Unless you reported it as an aftermarket part to your insurance company prior they won't cover it.

    A CAI is not good for your car without a tune for it anyway. Did you have a professional tune with the CAI on at the time?

    You expect somebody to give an estimate based on a few photos on the internet? There's way too much damage to the car for that. If the front suspension is damaged at all that could easily add $1000 to the estimate. Looks like there could be radiator damage too, and many other things. Impossible to say except that it'll be at least a few thousand.
