Well, you will probably miss that girl for a while, but she is the one who got pushy.

I would say insurance will total it but buying it back might not be such a bad idea. As long as the frame is good the rest of it is cosmetic and easily fixable by a man and a group of xlforum buddies!!!! Good luck with whatever you choose.
