I was driving home for the holidays from Austin yesterday. About an hour north of the city there is a little town called Lampasas. I stopped at a light going through town, and after a few seconds it turned green. I started to go, and after about fifty yards a lady in a Subaru pulled into my lane (the far left one). She wanted to turn, but instead of pulling into the turning lane to stop, she decided to stop in my lane. So I stopped for her and waited for about 5 seconds when BAM!!! I get rear-ended by a Dodge Ram pickup with a grill guard. To make matters worse, I get pushed into the idiot lady in front of me. Here's what needs to be replaced, IF the car is not totalled:

-driver's side rear quarter panel
-passenger side rear quarter panel
-trunk
-taillights
-rear bumper
-front bumper
-front hood
-exhaust
-front turn signal
-rear windshield
-rear brake light at top of windshield
-plus I'm leaking something...not sure what

This is just the cosmetic damage. Not sure if there is any structural damage. Airbags didn't go off.

I'll try and post pics soon. Can anyone estimate how much this will cost to repair or if it will be declared a total loss? I know there is some percentage of value that the insurance companies use to decide whether to fix it or not-can someone let me know what it is. I've got a 2000 328i with 30k miles, SP, PP, xenons.

There are too many ****ing idiots driving out there. The truck that slammed into you should cover everything though. Time for a new facelift :D

I was in the same situation, too. I stopped at a red traffic light and the car behind me hit me, the impact made my car jump and hit the car in front of me. The airbag didn't go off. Apparently the car that hit me had some problem with the brake. The lady driver cried after see the damage. Yes, my front windshield was shuttered, front and rear bumper broke. Fortunately her insurance payed for everything and it happened to my old Acura.
Women should be banned from driving, or at least their insurance rate must be higher than men! :mad:
