So I finally got my car back guys...I'm soooooooo stoked!!! I didn't expect the body shop to have my car fixed so quickly, and they did an incredible job!!! They're a certified BMW body shop called "Hi-Tech Auto" in Santa Ana, CA if any of you guys ever need body work done. They also hooked me up with the M-Tech Bumper, a brand new Dinan exhaust (to replace the old one) and detailed the car! Here's some Before & After Pics:

Before:



Accident:



Now:





New Dinan Exhaust:





Having my car back so soon made my week!!! The guy said, "I know you're not supposed to pick it up til next week, but since you're young, and its a Friday night, I'll do the paperwork now and you can come back in a couple hours and pick it up."

Thanks for the replies fellas! :thumbup: I'm really happy with it, just waiting for 630 to roll around so I can go pick her up.

Sunapollo:
I think the body shop just knocked out that ding you're talking about, looks really smooth.

Sheefo2k:
Yeah some people leave that middle part of the M-Tech bumper as black and unpainted, I like that look too, but I'm digging the fact that my car is now rid of black bumpers/rubber and its painted all around. Now its time for the M-Tech front!

Thanks man :thumbup: I was really surprised that the body shop was so willing to work with me and get the M-tech bumper; the insurance company at first didnt even want to pay for the Dinan exhaust...but it all worked out in the end. :D

what's the part number on that new rear bumber?

Thanks
I searched this board for a while till I found the part numbers...I'm not sure exactly which is which, but these are the numbers I gave to the body shop. You can see that I have 2 sets of part numbers; each set was from a different person, but I gave my body shop all the numbers I had and they made it work.

rear coupe:
51-12-7-893-071 Trim Panel
51-12-7-891-916 Cover
51-12-7-893-074 Flap

51 12 7 893 071 - Rear Bumper Cover

51 12 7 893 071 - mtech rear bumper cover
51 12 7 891 916 - mtech rear bumper trim

Good luck

Looks real good, man. Hey, can you show how well the car looks with the m-tech rear bumper with your stock sides? Does it flow well?

I think it flows pretty well with the sides, but the car definitely needs the MTech front bumper as well to match perfectly. I actually just took my car back to the body shop to have them tighten the bumper a little more; the left side had a slight gap in it compared to the right, it was hanging down a little. I'll take some more pictures and post it for you later on this week. :thumbup:

How about a new Mtech front? Coming soon? :D
Yep, the Mtech front will be coming soon. Hopefully I can score a used one that's already painted Ti Silver so I can save some $$$. I wasn't really planning on modding my car anymore and instead saving the $$ to get a motorcycle, but seeing the potential of my car with an Mtech kit has got me pretty enticed... :D
