Glad to hear you're ok. Rear end accidents are never fun.

You will be getting a new car. With the C pillars creased like that, there is some serious structural damage. It was designed to crease at those points so the transfer of energy wouldn't reach your body. That's also why you see the crush points distorted when you open the boot. I wouldn't feel safe in that car even if they were able to straighten it out on the frame machine.

This is why I don't like people who drive with bologna tires. And I'm kinda glad that parts of Canada are enforcing snow tires.
