Dear Holiness HELP ME

I just let my 8 roll down a huge hill into a person's BRICK house corner. I've demolished the rear left side of my car. This bent my wheel (so hopefully a good bit of shock went into it), i believe it also hurt the axle and perhaps the limited slip diff. My question was, if I take it to a Mazda bodyshop, do you guys think I'm going to get it back to the way it was? I was told at both bodyshops I'm thinking of going to that it'll be FINE. And they guaranteed that they do this all day long.

Opinions that it'll feel the same?

I was told it looked mostly "aesthetically damaged" not so much mechanically. And I don't really believe all that. The trunk got bent up AND the window flew out. Luckily, I don't THINK the frame was bent any. But another thing, is that I'm not sure the paint job will be the same.

*just trying to be thorough in what all happened*

I'm sorry to hear of your misfortune but I must mention to you that I probably have everything that you need. Mazda used parts is what I do all day long. I guess it's up to your insurance company also but let me know if I can help relieve the burden.
Paul.
