Default Camry/Lexus Newbie

On Dec 31 I bought a 97 Lexus ES300 in the most mint condition I have ever
seen an older car. Slightly less than 24 hours later I am proudly sitting at
an intersection waiting for traffic to clear when an unlicensed, uninsured
drunk in an unwarranted, unregistered car which wasnąt his hits me doing
100kph.

The front of the Lexus is a write-off, but I am told they can fix it with
the front of a Camry as there is little difference. Is anyone able to tell
me just how little is the difference and should I be insisting on standard
parts.

Sorry if this isn't a proper Camry question or is outside the group
discussion, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

I can be emailed at nygllhuw@wanganui.info if the forum isn't the right
place to respond.

All the best to everyone for 2005

That doesn't seem correct. The inner structure is the same along with the
radiator and most of the engine parts but the sheet metal and bumper etc.
will be drastically different and will not fit.
