Any cameras in the parking lot? Insurance companies LOVE getting footage of the damage being caused by someone other than the insured.

Update:
Police found the guy; it's going on his insurance. Doesn't really matter, since my deducible on a hit and run turns out to be $0, but satisfying somehow.

Mods that'll result from this:
M3 mirrors
roof rack delete trim will be getting painted red

... and I'm still debating the M Sport 2 bumper...

Good thing itís getting fixed how it should be. Same damage happened to my wagon so I ordered a door in the same color and in the process of swapping everything over as well as M3 mirrors and roof rack delete.

How's the car doing? Looking forward to seeing the M3 mirrors on there.

I ordered an M Tech II front bumper for the wagon.

My list of purchased but not installed parts grows longer and longer. Stupid... being drive 100 miles/day, every day, status. Currently sitting ready parts:
M Tech II front bumper
upgraded projectors/bulbs
M3 mirrors
Euro headers and cats, with new pre cat O2s

Once I have the 530i assembled and on the road, I intend to DD it for a bit and dig into all these wagon projects. It just rolled over 190,000 miles, so I plan to do a top end refresh on it-- head gasket and new valve guides/seals, as well as a fuel injector rebuild. I'll also switch it from the Beisan prototype chain guide to the Beisan production change guide. I also plan to flash a euro M3 tune onto it, given the Euro M3 headers.

I also have the M3 behind bumper ducting and aux fan (Kaiv included it with the car). I haven't previously been able to use it, because of the stock bumper, but the M sport bumper plays nice with it-- so I'll be sticking that on at the same time.

I think the M tech II bumper prices must have just gone up from BMW. After I ordered it, I went back to getbmwparts the next day, and the price had increased by $200

My 17" BBS RG-Rs for this car arrived yesterday and are currently getting refinished. 18" RG-Rs are sold.

I also stumbled upon some ZHP M cube trim in a junk yard the other day, so I grabbed that. Will probably install it at some point, though I like my 3M trim :P

Beyond that, I don't have any further modification plans for this car.... might just change over to being on an upkeep plan.
