Default Re: What did you do to/for your ///M today?

Picked up my red sled from the body shop today. Long story short I rear-ended someone on the freeway.

Thankfully no serious injuries, no airbag deployment, no frame damage, no drivetrain damage. But the initial tally of parts and labor made me fearful insurance was going to claim total loss, thankfully that didn't happen.

Lots of parts up front had to be replaced, an incomplete list: hood, bumper, bumper reinforcement, radiator support, radiator, airbox, headlights, grills, AC condenser, aux fan; pretty much all new OE BMW parts. Fenders refinished and paint matched to existing hue.

Before:



After:


PSA: Give yourself an extra car length; drive safely.

Many thanks to my friends at Signature Autobody in Orange, CA. Owners are car enthusiasts and great guys, check them out if you need repairs or paint and body work.

Next on the list: replace the fog lamps and get cleared bra'd.
