Don't know what insurance you have but make sure they don't try to send you to their body shop to get work done. Stand your ground and have BMW take care of everything.
They might try to send you to their shop and put replacement parts on your car and shit. Don't let them finger you around. Stay firm and have BMW take care of you.
I was able to choose the shop I wanted, no problem. It's at a BMW dealership.
