M3 Coupe Oil Pan Cracked

Hi guys,
a stone yesterday apparently cracked my oil pan...Oil was leaking heavily, fortunately I immediately noticed and stopped 200 feet later...

I was wondering, what kind of costs am I looking at to get this fixed? Wondering if i should get insurance involved or not. It's my first "accident" in the US so I want to get as much info as i can before talking to the dealer/insurance

thanks for the headsup!

Oil pan is $500 and the install is an arm and a leg since so many components need to be removed before you can take the pan out. Better go thru insurance
