DIY URGENT - Crash in France

Hey all!

Bit of a newbie here, and a relatively new driver! I'd really appreciate some advice!
I have a Mini Cooper S, and managed to crash into a bush the other day.
The front right wheel seemed to have been pushed back so that, when rolling, the wheel rubs against the wheelguard.
Furthermore, the small panel in front of the door has been pushed up and out of place.
I wasn't going very fast, so it seems like a whole lot of bad luck.

Anyhow, the Mini garage I sent it two has given me an 8'000 bill, (which seems extortionate to me).
Does this seem an appropriate sum to you..? More to the point, how would you suggest I proceed?
'Kicking myself' doesn't even begin to encompass my feelings...

Thank you so much for any help, I really appreciate this!

Thanks again!
All the best,

MiniIssue

P.S.
I've posted this on two sections because I was unsure which would be best!
