not totaled...my car even had suspension damage, needed 2 xenon headlights (900 each), hood, both fenders, bumper, and everything in between and still was not totaled. It was damn close though, if they had not put cheap wheel pricing and labor on the quote ($40/hour? Really?) then it would have been totaled for sure.

personally, I would only have my body work done at a bmw approved place. I know one of the dealerships in Houston has it's own body and paint shop at their location.

I took my car to my fathers friend's shop. It is a very small shop all the way down in stafford. They do a lot of work for bmw and lexus dealerships.

I hear metropolitan collision is a great shop, lifetime warranty on their work is nice too. http://metropolitancollision.com/

I kinda wish mine was totaled right now...

My car is still at the body shop.

My car is now cosmetically fixed, however it is undrivable because the steering is messed up really badly. In some positions, the steering wheel is fine, but in others the wheel becomes really difficult to turn. Looks like the steering rack was damaged

Time to call up the insurance company and ask for a supplement, the steering rack damage was not in the initial quote.

damn that sucks. mine was totaled because the supplement made the price to fix my car over what State Farm was willing to pay. hopefully you get your car back soon tho.

I saw a badass 4dr 3 series e46 pulling out of long John sliver today(7/24;around 4 pm), red with the CSL trunk, I believe some Borla exhaust tips, smoked M3 taillights and some after market rim with a red lip, also had a fin on the back windsheild, this was in Pasadena..

Nice!!!

My car is just one thing after another...steering rack, power steering pump, and now it would not align due to a bent suspension piece...each seperate issue that arises means I gotta wait for the adjuster to come look at it again
