I was in a hurry going to class today, and I hit my front left fender to my carport pole. It seems that there is a dent to it, and the paint off the pole is on my car... I will take pics later (currently in class)

Should I take my car to a body shop or to a bmw dealer?

Anyone know any good body shop in san fernando valley area?

ouch, if it's repairable, it will definetly need paint. if it's popped out the painted will probably stretch and/or crack.

yup, you'll need a new fender. i'm pretty sure that it can't be banged out at that area. but call a good body shop and they'll tell you forsure.

Try reporting to your insurance as a hit and run?

Screw fixing it man. Be smart. Report to insurance, take it to the body shop, and get the body shop to either order M3 fenders or Tornado fenders. I would personally do the M3 ones... then get the hamann grill covers... MMM. Since it's OEM, they can't say no. I think it'll fit...
When my trunk got a hole put through it, I got an 04 trunk with the elongated handle free of charge...
