Is there any underlying damage? There usually is & that can throw what looks like a simple swap a big curve. Been there done that.
Are you sure the hood is uninvolved?

Get the Eagle Eye CCFL headlights.

As for a fender, look here: http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/rafr...&parttype=1380

As for the OEM bumper, http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/rafr...&parttype=1344

There might be more to it than that though. Take it to a reputable body shop and they can list all the items and prices. The bumper and fender will need to be painted and matched to the chassis and don't forget about the bumper absorber and foglights they might be damaged as well.. Also, make sure that your suspension and other other parts arn't bent internally. You don't want to get your car fixed and find out that she bent something else or cracked your windshield wiper fluid tank. Why not take this through insurance?

If you purchase from RockAuto instead of supplying the items from a body shop (who know exactly what is needed), then get the premium/OEM parts, not economy.

You can also browse http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/catalog/frameset.cfm for OEM parts. More expensive than aftermarket but high quality. Just type "fender" and "bumper" into the keyword search after setting up the Pontiac G6 as your car in the prompt.

Thankfully the hood is totally fine. The bumper is pushed in while the hood is completely fine. Main damage is the hole and the shattered emblem. I know hoods come without emblems, where can I find black emblem? Fogs work fine, I always use them so that is nice.I looked at concept aftermarkey hoods and I see the grey lip on the bottom so I assume it would not match the car but idk maybe it'll look good. Suggestions? I have spyder headlights not and the light output is horrible it makes me angry. Are the ones suggested above much brighter? Ill post pics tomorrow

Post a wide angle picture of the front fascia. I can't see what's happened to the badge. Is that a hole just below the badge? From what you've shown it looks like a patch & paint-in-place. But it's kind of hard to tell through all the deceased bugs.

It may be less expensive to just replace it with a pre-paint part if you are willing to do it yourself. Of course there's always the color-matching to worry about when you buy that way.
