I had the same question. I hope itís not where spending all that time to fight for getting the true value of the car, only to be stuck with getting virtually the same price out when I buy it back.

Still, itís pretty heartbreaking to see that consensus is itís totaled. Itís my first car and it obviously has grown so much on me. Thanks for all the tips guys, Iím glad to have been on this forum as long as I have.

Update: adjuster took a look and for bumper, rear QP, and wheel, it can be done without totalling the car. May just have my car back on the road soon, now to bring it in to a collision shop? Any advice on which kind of place to take it to? State Farm has a list of the shops that they use, but of course I'd look to get it done as cleanly as possible.

Don't agree to take it to insurance company recommended shop, unless it is a quality shop that does good job and a place where you would take your car to be repaired if it wasn't insurance company pick.

Haha it's fairly low (for its age) at 110k, really don't drive it much. I'm taking it to Signature Autobody in Orange, they seem like they have good knowledge on BMWs.
