Try and understand the editing and production process:

Writers provide the director with a script (realistic or not. Try and accept a collect call on a cell phone). The script is storyboarded. One of the storyboards shows a wrecked vehicle.

Producers and directors have to work under a budget... They're NOT going to trash a working car. They are going to scout junk yards for a similar model, paint it appropriately, and use it for the two second shot needed to bring the point home. There are entire industries on the Shaky Side based on providing directors with props, cars, food packages, dress, and other flotsam and jetsam from an appropriate era, or to fit a particular request. In this case, they went out and sourced a trashed BMW 'vert, probably painted it to match the original, and went with it rather than wait for the exact model and brand to pop up.

It's no different from the suspension of disbelief in a Broadway show, people. The helo in Miss Saigon wasn't real, was it? 99% of the people watching are following the drama (it is a drama, not a reality show), and are not going to give a good goddamn if it's the exact same car or not. It's all about the money, honey... That's how Hollywood works, in case you hadn't noticed...
