Unhappy MY11 sedan write off. What to do?

Hi all. It appears my insurance doesn't wish to cover my MY11 sedan so I'm left with a wrecked WRX. Has anybody been in this situation or know somebody that has been in this situation before that can offer some advice? My guess is I can either part it out or try to sell the vehicle to Pickles auctions? Car runs beautiful but has some hefty panel damage. Any advice would be appreciated.

If you have full comphrensive insurance, I don't see why your insurance company won't pay you out?

Seems like your username is appropriate.../cheap shot.

Any idea on cost to repair?

If insurance won't cover it then technically it isn't a write off. Have you had it looked at by a panel beater? Sometimes things aren't as bad as they look. Sometimes they are worse.

Go speak to a panel beater.
Get fixed?

Surely it would cost less to fix than buy another.

Alternatively, sell cat the engine and running gear for $100?
