Having had both happen to me, I definitely prefer *not* hitting the car, regardless of the insurance implications.
And just order the parts and install them yourself. Based on your description it should be about an hour's worth of work.
Whenever I get/ride a new bike I always do a few emergency stops away from traffic to make sure I know the ability of the bike. After a few times you'll figure out the best way to come to a quick emergency stop. Every bike is different, example my 250 its best to hit front brakes hard as possible and about 20 % on the rear brake whereas my 9r its more like 60/40, I think it has something to do with the weight,it is EXTREMELY easy to lockup the rear on a 250 while braking hard.
