I noticed from one of the photos that both front airbags have deployed. The passenger one's a dash-ripper, isn't it?

A lot of cars are written off these days purely due to the interior damage done by the airbags. I'm not sure how much a new steering wheel and dash are going to cost from a scrappy's, but you'll have to budget for purchase and fitting of them on top of everything else.

How much are the insurers offering you for your car? If it's a decent offer then, in your shoes, I think I'd let them write it off and buy a replacement.
