My Ride: 2001 BMW 330i
Totaled?? (Pics included)

2001 330i 117k Miles, Multiple accidents both Front and rear throughout last 7 years


My dumbass was doing donuts in the snow and hit a building, now its come to the point where i NEED to do something, i have major oil leak and powersteering pump/brakes need to be replaced and before i sink money into any of that i need to know if you would consider it totaled, and if its worth fixing and keeping until something really major breaks or should i just call up the insurance company and try to get a check for it...

hit on the passengerside hard enough to tweak out the driver side... trunk still opens and closes although not flush by a long shot... no visible water damage

Spare tire was wedged in there pretty good but i got it out, tried to get good pictures of the spare tire well but its tough to show how much its tweaked.

well i konw its fixable,, the thing is how much? reason i've been avoiding going to the insurance is that my premium is already 300/month and with a handful of accidents in the last 7 years i have a feeling their either gonnna raise me up to where its just not even worth it or just drop me completely..

so basicly,, if i do call up insurance think they'll hand me a "fair-market-value" check or just give me the boot....

selling it as is probably worth like 500$


and yeah yeah i know stupid.......

Don't do drugs and drive >>>>

was sandwiched at a red light(front bumper/ rear bumper/trunk)... smacked a parked car driver side ( passenger fender/bumper/headlight)... rear-ended a golf (bumper/hood/radiator and all types of sht in front)... rear ended a mini-van(lightly lol,,, bumper/hood) and there was atleast 1 other accident and some minor stuff but i can't remember right now... 4 year xannax and oxycodine binge didnt do much good for the memory

With a driving record like that perhaps you should consider taking the bus...

if anyone has some valuable input on either the car's worth, cost to fix, or if insurance would consider it totaled or just pay for it to get fixed and raise my premiums or just drop me completely

i'd greatly appreciate it.

Not worth the amount of $$ to be put on that car to fix the damage + mechanical issues. Since you can't get shi* by selling the car, just part it out. Put some $$ on top and buy another one.

I hope you're not going to try to sell this story to insurance if you go that route.

Do you have comprehensive insurance or just liability? Were any of your other accidents ever reported?

Man I want what ever drugs he is doing that make him halucinate to the point that he sees snow in Florida, in August.

As far as fixing the car goes. Smoke alot more of what you were smoking when you saw the snow & maybe it will look fixed.

By the way, totaled.
