not sure if this is the right section at all.....

i decide to make a new thread just for me.

I had not even stopped at a stop sign and i noticed that a 98 Jeep grand cherokee was following closely and when i stopped, she keep going about 30-35mph into the rear of my 3. not sur it it is totaled or not? btw my seat back went backwards a few notches and my headrest is very loose so it might need to be replaced. my front wheel well lining also came off a bit too(no pics) also, look at the pics of my glovebox. when she hit me, it fell open but i closed it quickly out of habit. but look at how it is coming apart!?!?!

here are my pics. all 11 of them.

glove box first:



The 3 itself:










PRICES for fixing my 3:









******UPDATE******

3/6/09​

Dad just left the auto mall. Said they are waiting on my NEW bumper to arrive. Everything else looks perfect. They replaced even more of the dashboard actually! 0_0 I should be getting my car back this coming week! I cant wait to see it or to drive it reallllllllly hard on the way home!

Ha ha...no. When I had my accident with a truck tire, all they needed to do was give me a new front bumper and plastic underneath. They had it for a little over a week. Expect longer for yours possibly...

Re: bms1990M3's wrecked 3

Talk to the company doing the repairs. Some companies are cool and will let you pay the difference between aftermarket and OEM parts and if you don't mind the shipping date, they will put those on in lieu of the OEM ones... If that makes sense. Like you could get LED tails and they will put credit towards them as opposed to the OEM tails they were going to put on. My brother cracked up his civic a few years back and ordered an aftermarket front bumper and they covered the whole thing since it was cheaper than OEM lol.

Re: bms1990M3's wrecked 3

Thats sucks man whats the odds of this happening to 2 of the people running for car of the month at the same time. It happened to me 2 about 2 weeks ago but mine isnt nearly as bad. I was rearened at a redlight. I hope everything goes smooth for you. I think im going with a aftermarket bumper on mine though.
