i just got into an accident new yrs eve (what a way to end the yr) and my car just got towed from my driveway on its way to the bodyshop.. i was wondering, after looking at the guy setting up the chains, he said there are no holes in bmws for the hooks to go in so he wraps the chains around my rims and axel.. i was wondering if that is gonna do any damage to the car..?

that's how the guy did it when my car was towed. he wrapped the chains around the axel.

he was about to wrap it through my 19's but then he noticed i was looking at him funny.

Take a look at your rear lower control arms. They are a popular tie down spot for tow truck guys and may have been used rather than the half shafts as you stated. Securing the car by the lower control arms results in bent arms which usually fail catastrophically later.
