Help! Have wheel insurance and in accident!

Hey guys, interesting situation I have here. I slid into a curb in the snow last Saturday and slammed my right front wheel pretty hard. Long story short, got it towed, and filed with insurance in case of undercarrage damage. Sure enough, adjuster went out there and some suspension damage and they are paying for two new wheels...heres the kicker. I have wheel insurance. Do you think I can negotiate some free parts with BMW, like an M steering wheel, etc? or is it wishful thinking. Thanks in advance.

Clearly my post was not interpreted correctly. I have wheel insurance already. i slid into curb, and had to go through my regular insurance...fast forward. My regular insurance (Geico) is paying for 2 new wheels, THAT ARE ALREADY COVERED BY MY WHEEL INSURANCE. And guess what...I am able to recoup some of the insurance money that I can now put towards accessories...I am so happy to see that the forums haven't changed a bit...little value-add, bashing "innocent" questions, etc. now I know why I stay away. Thanks for bringing me to my senses. and I am the retarded one...too funny.

But in your op you said if the dealership will give you a m steering wheel from the wheel insurance.

The wheel and tire insurance does not cover collisions, only regular "road hazards". Further, the insurance is not through BMW but rather a 3rd party. They are not going to give you a "voucher" for accessories because they don't have to pay a claim. Either you are stupid or are attempting to defraud one or more insurance companies. Or both.

I don't think it's the forum's fault that you didn't clearly stated your thought on you original post. It's clear that you wanted something else for somethingelse. So take it easy next time because last time I checked, you are a member of this forum as well.
