BMW vs. Curb

long shot but better then just sitting here.

bumped a curb on my way to work this morning.
near eglington and royal york.
looks like the front right control arm is bent. possibly a tie rod?

need it fixed asap and also towed to a location.
(currently chillen in the car now)

what do you recommend is the closest?
anyone to call for a flatbed?

will pay cash if that helps.

if you can help me out give me a shout.

All good, i got it sorted out.

bent the control arm into the fender
crushed the fender
ripped the M3 skirt off
bent the outer tie rod a little
cracked the fog light
scuffed up the paint and the M3 bumper pretty good


waited 4 hours for a tow
flatbed 6kms down the road - 120$
control arm and hub assembly - 100$
labour from a sketchy Ukraine dude - 100$


just some comsetic things left to fix now.
dinged it up and 6am back on the road at 5pm
drives like it did before.
cant complain, could be worse.

haha yeah i was surprised with the work. and that torch must be key! theres no tow either way and goes straight without any hands on the wheel.
not even a wobble at highway speeds.

i thought for sure i would need a new outer tie rod.
