View Full Version : Cost of the damage to my car!!!!

Well I just got my quote back from BMW to replace my rear quarter panel.
Including taxes it going to be about (US)$2600!!!!!!!!!!
That that don't included getting the rest of the car painted which will be about the same again, but I'm still waiting to hear exactly how much they want for the rest of the car.

I still can't make my mind up whether to get it fixed or replaced?

insurance wont give you enough money for the car
you'll be better off repairing it and then reselling it
you'll lose less money, or you may be lucky and gain money

I very much doubt they will write that car off as they are still worth a lot of money.
I'm pretty sure they will pay for the damage to be fixed. and if the do write it off, I will get payed out for the car.

Remember, check out their work and ask for references. If it is a BMW repair facility, they can probably give you some references with E-30 M3's that you might be able to see before and after pics. of the repairs. Possibly even check out the car after the repair work, and talk to the car's owner. Good Luck!
