    I am Stefanie and I am new but not quite to Subaru's in general.

    I currently have an 04 Subaru WRX sport wagon.

    As of 12-22-06, my WRX is injured. Some stupid girl ran a red and slammed into me, leaving quite some damage.

    My options were to fix it and get rid of it ( Get an STi )
    Or fix it, and keep it ( Cars never run the same after accidents )
    Or sell it to my ex boyfriend so he can put the engine ( which is completely unharmed, ) into his regular Impreza.

    I think I should keep him ( it's a standard. The only way to drive. )

    Look..it makes me cry..

    Hello and welcome to the club Stefanie!

    It could be a lot worse; you are able to post this up and say Hello!

    A replacement door panel and you are good to go. That will have zero impact on the way the wagon drives. A little over a year ago I had this happen to my 2004:

    I hit a deer early this morning :(

    Aside from a few minor aesthetic issues, the WRX is like nothing ever happened.

    OUCH!!! I am glad you alright but your wagon must be hurtin. THat damage doesn't look too bad so you should be able to fix her up and get her back on the road in no time. I just replaced my hood cause some dillhole slammed his hand on it. Luckily found a PSM STI hood in the area for 300 bucks and now I have a bigger scoop and a perfectly undented hood. Good luck in the repair and welcome to the club.

    Welcome to the forum. However, in light of modern bodywork techniques this statement:

    is absloutely beyond erronious. Computerized body jigs make repair a good option.

    OTOH, if you can parlay it into an STi, go for it!
