I spun out on a DVP ramp yesterday

Walked away fine. Insurance will deal, less my $1K deductible. Have the car at Prochilo Bros.

Hopefully all's well that ends well!

Quite the experience!! Hit some water on the ramp, as I was shifting into 3rd.

Bumped the left rail (you can see where in one pic), caromed 360 right, and then got perched (beyond me how that happened!).

Please, laugh with me at not at me! Got charged with a careless, that I plan to go and plea down at the court.

I just want my baby back! I got 2 pc DPE's I want to put on my ride for next spring.

Well, it's at Prochilos now. They are certified by Downtown BMW. I researched and they seem solid. Do you know otherwise? My insurance appraiser will be there Monday. I don't have much time then, to relocate the car... their shop had many bimmers in it as I saw yesterday...

Damn, DVP is notorious for water build up. My bro wrote off his civic near the bayview-bloor exit in August. It was raining pretty hard and he was on his way to work when he went through a big puddle. He ended up hydroplaning and straight into the concrete barrier.

One reason I'm asking too - if anyone knows about Prochilos, is that while this is being sorted, I'm also thinking about going out of pocket for a hood repaint, M3 reps side mirror colour match, and a general clay/paint restore.

If I have my car at the wrong spot, please tell me!! Thanks all!!

Thanks. The funny thing is about an hour later they closed the DVP due to excessive water build-up...

Wow, sorry to see, but i'm glad you're here and you were able to dust yourself off. That's all that matters.

I agree with the top poster. Take it to European Autobody.

Steve - you know that? About the DVP being closed? This happened to me at 12 pm yesterday. I'm going to go to court to settle the careless they dropped on me. I'm happy to plead it down - can't be bothered to set a trial date and such, because the cop was freaking solid!. But knowing they closed the DVP, and details (do you know where online I could find the details?), would help me sell my case. Thanks bro!

Question to all - how can I intervene now and get my car taken over to see Rich at European? I was flustered obviously! I will have to talk to my broker. Do I need to pay the tow to get the car there? I will write Rich post-haste!

Sorry everyone - I'm mixed up. I'd read rave reviews about Rich at Luxury Autobody.

But in your humble opinion, I should go to European?

Please help me out. I will have to pull the trigger on Monday morning...anyone know what leverage I have to insist to my insurance company, that I want to change shops, now that my car is already at a certified joint?

Sorry to hear about your misfortune. Any accident you can walk away from is a good one. Another good option is Luxury Auto body, they do excellent work and the owner is a stand up guy.

If you signed anything, you can't switch. Otherwise just call your insurance company and tell them you want it done at european.

Thanks Propr' I signed an authorization for the adjuster to come out. So I guess I'm locked in.

I want a little extra work too on my own behalf...I will only get them to quote then...

Anyone know estimates of what a hood repaint should run? (I'm loathe to do it, because I'd much rather source a stock M3 hood to replace mine); mirror colour-matching? A general paint restore for swirls and such?

Thanks everyone for your help...appreciate your time to help me out!

I don't know the exact date but I'll ask my brother when I see him. Maybe you could give the city a call. I'm sure they would have it on record. Also, my buddy had some work done at Prochilo's. I don't think you have much to worry about if you're locked in with them. If you aren't though get it to European since they are the best around.
