    I think that's a sweet wagon you got yourself.

    Seriously, though, I've been in a few crashes like that, front and back with a variety of cars, and if that's gone to the frame, you might be better off totaling it and salvaging what mods you can. Straightening the frame is hardly ever worth it.

    Just my .02.

    If you end up parting the car out I may be interested in buying some parts.

    A WRX doesn't have a frame.

    Why would you like to get hit in the front of the car more than the rear?

    The front is easier to fix, and you are more likely to sustain a neck injury when hit from the rear.

    I was thinking from the engines point of view..I can guarantee if you had a hit like that from the front they would prob. claim the car as totaled......(that is a good point though trainrex I never really thought of that)

    I was thinking of it from my point of view of rebuilding wrecks for the last 15 years. The car is totaled.
    Just in case you don't understand what a total loss is, it means the repair will cost a certain percentage of the cars book value to repair, and hence is not worth repairing. Considering the car is an '02, yes it's totaled. If the car was an '09, it's value may have saved it from total.
    There is no such thing as an unrepairable car. Any car can be repaired.
