Well , Im a moron!



So after all this time of driving around, I got the bright idea to save money and borrow the van from the parents. All was great, until I met the parking garage wall of doom. Split second not checking how close I was and....

I killed the van's quarter panel and door.


So my question/s are as follows:

Does anyone know a good shop to pull the dents out? I ll need to get that done first, the door is a write off isn t it?

I ll post pics of stupidity soon.

Facepalm. At least it wasn't the bmws, then again, those can TURN.

Depends on how bad the damage is to the qtr panel; the body shop probably will source out a panel and get the door too.

PM you info of a shop.

haha, it sounds like you turned too tight? That's the opposite of what you'd expect if BMW's turned better
