I am glad both of you walked away from it. Partial overlap crashes are the most dangerous ones, and the energy released from such an impact is extremely high, so the car really did its job in protecting you guys. Despite the injury to your wife and the lengthy recovery period, it's a good thing that you were able to walk away. Looking on the bright side, it's a good opportunity to start planning on your next BMW!

Wishing you well...

Sorry to hear that but glad you are all well and still amongst us. Cars and mods can be replaced but people and memories cannot. Here's to new ones with a new car after the insurance is finished taking care of you. Maybe an M5 is in your future!

Wow...$40k and counting? Is that with labor included from the body shop or just parts? If so..yeah you're likely looking at a total. I just got my 2012 BMW 550i for $68k when BMW threw in the end of year incentives and discounts so you're already 2/3rd into the the cost of a new one. How much in mods did you have in the car? Yeah I think its time to go M5 shopping probably but glad you guys are doing okay...could have been worse.

Thanks dblock! Update: We got back last week from another hand surgery for my wife. HAd to have metal plates put in her wrist and 2 plates in hand..So have been busy,to say the least... Well the insurance finally totalled the car with an estimated 54K in damages!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are putting future car purchase to the back burner since my wife has been unable to work(we own-operate a dental lab,making teeth for dentists)And no right hand makes it hard to make teeth. Maybe a 14 550i or 650 Gran Coupe or maybe a Ford Pinto if finances dont improve??Thanks to ALL for your prayers and kind words!!!
