From the damage you describe I'd say that they will write it off even if the shell is straight.It's very easy to tot up thousands when your replacing suspension components complete,and as Horatio says,as a result of the accident the car will probably never really drive any sense when repaired unless it is done absolutely meticulously.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
