it pains me to see all those wrecked BMWs....OP, good luck getting your car back to order....not sure if that will be possible considering the extent of damages to it. It will be nice to see everything sorted out but my guess is that it will cost you a lot more than what the car is worth to fix it. Just something to consider. good luck!

I look at this as a positive. We all walked away from the accident. One the reason I wanted a bimmer was the safety features. Unfortunately some of us had to see it in action.

My mechanic told me these cars are very high tech. It will determine if the airbags need to deploy with certain factors. but lol @ your joke

That what I'm going though right now. The pain in the chest area. And to top it off I can't even workout. So I just sit The insurance company totaled mine before even looking at it.

Here is my Before and after photo.

Some of the parts you can probably find here when people are parting out. My car, I'm sure had some frame damage. Parts alone would have been in the upwards of $5k and then labor too.

Good luck ... I know it gonna be a pain.. hope that everything turns out for the best.

Been there done that. Doesn't look bad, but it was totaled. 4 hours after I bought it.

No up-side-down action yet?...

This hurts every day, but I learned a good lesson and now can keep my foot off the damn gas pedal! Speed + Immaturity = Bad Idea
