wow thats some crazy shit. and just to let you know insurance companies love aftermarket parts cuz they are cheaper than OEM. when i mean aftermarket i dont mean ACS, i mean like some company that makes OEM knock offs....unless you go to a BMW dealer, your not getting OEM shit. trust me. good luck man. hopefully everything works out for you in the end.
Rest In Peace, Dad 7/2/09 Miss you...
