That wing is probably repairable, they are single skin and rear access is excellent.

Most bodyshops would prefer to not disturb seams, if possible.

If a door is needs, saloon and estate doors are the same apart from the estates have the upper extension stuck on with Pu adhesive.

Update:....still waiting to get the car inspected/quote. Everybody is VERY busy !
I have looked all over the car and all seams,door shuts dead straight, sills all good, tailgate good....... I estimate Front bumper can be fixed (well I will give it a go) and a big question mark on the rear door

I will need, Rear bumper, rear wing, rear lamp unit, tail gate coloured trim strip, tailgate S2 spoiler

Update on SunRoof............it has been raining a lot....sunroof is showing no leaks

Update: Sunroof, no leaks after nearly 2 months so I am now ready to refit the headliner.

I have re-stuck the edges that came loose using H-Duty Adhesive and re-fixed the Velcro strips.

It's just a financial transaction.
As parts aren't readily available they will probably want to cover it on a contract repair, to avoid escalation of costs, but otherwise it's straightforward...the body shop performs a repair and bills the insurance company for the agreed amount.

Presumably the parts are just light unit, outer wing, door, bumper, spoiler.

Good luck with the repair all going to plan.
