Breaking my Cooper S ?

Recently had a bit of a ding with my Cooper S. About 1 am. Foggy. Cold. Slippy. T junction at the bottom of a hill and skidding straight over it into a hedge and a great big sign.

Its a 05 plate in british racing green. just shy of 54,000 miles on the clock and a full mini service history..... its even got the next service paid for with the mini tlc extended pack thing. (sigh) The front took all the brunt of the impact. The front bumper has been smashed to bits. the bonnet has a fair few dents and creases now and has been pushed back an inch and a bit i guess. the windscreen took a fair old whack too. Clutch has gone as i took out the clutch slave cylinder along with a lot of the air con pipes and the rads. the chassis legs look straight still and the metal slam pannel behind the bumper seem to be in good shape. Both air bags deployed so the dash is knackered. The Xenon headlights are not smashed but the head light rinds will need replacing. its got half leather and s spokes all in good condition. the car was immaculate befor this prang.

What i was wondering is what kind of money am i looking at for breaking it? rear bumper, side skirts, "s" fuel cap, doors, boot lid, interior, dash bits like clocks/speedo etc etc. then im guessing the super charger and maybe some other engine bits or the engine as a whole?! i got it started again and it ran ok.... bit of a knock but i think that could be the gear box or the clutch....or lack of clutch?

any feed back and stuff greatly welcomed.

If no serious structural bodyshell damage, I would repair using secondhand parts from here:
