Actually, it was my brother that got into the accident. He got nailed dead on, while I was sitting comfortably in my X. I've been in an accident in the 3 before though and I can tell you one thing for sure. BMW is one of the safest vehicles made. When you can take a a dead on hit to the driver door when the other car was doing like 40 mph, and walk away without a scratch, you truly see how much BMW dedicates to safety.
Not even close to totalled. The problem is that these cars need something like $25,000+ in damages to be considered totalled. I forget the exact percentage, but the insurance company looks the estimate to fix and then takes that number versus a % of the price of the car and whichever is lower wins. If you do wreck your car, make sure you send it somewhere that you "know" someone:thumbup: to take care of it. Otherwise you will stuck with it like me, but it's o.k., the car has been in two pretty serious accidents :thumbdwn: :thumbdwn: , but to this day it is still an amazing drive. impin:
:thumbup: , Still handles like a champ dry or wet. I swear . I have the ACS sways and Dinan front strut and the car is still glued to the road.
In case anybody cares, Paul MIller BMW(Wayne, NJ) has an internal body shop that they just moved off site. It is located in Pompton Lakes and it is the $hit. The paintwork is awesome. They even painted the lower panel and molding on my X. I will post pics of my 3 and X soon. But they really know what they are doing when comes to working on BMW's and Audi's. :thumbup:
