Repair cost

What would be the repair for a 06 325 driverside both doors, which are dented and scratched. The c pillar, running board and part of the rear bumper?

I wanna say about 4-8k.

That's enough damage to total a 06 325i anyway lol.

I had less damage that that being rear ended and they totaled my car...


2 doors, rear bumper, paint, some side skirt damage, labor...you're well into that territory.

I had similar damage to that on my passenger side, but the doors were just scratched, not dented. A little bit of the quarter panel behind the rear door was dented though.

I got quotes that ranged from $2,900 to over $5,000. The insurance claim ended up around $3,200. Because you need new doors, I'd imagine the price would be a good bit higher than that though.

Better off sourcing doors from a junk yard with that color

I had exactly similar job done at my e60 528xi 2008 at a local indy auto body shop for $900 and it was done in 4 days. That is basically only cosmetic stuff tho it looks worse than it really is.
Now if you are asking how much would insurance quote it - that will be a completely different story lol. I'm sure they will say around $5-6k at least.
Insurance quote and what it really cost to repair are very different things really. We live in a society where it's normal for insurance to quote $2-3k for a small cosmetic dimple on a door - that my indy shop can fix for $300

If it were mine I would be worried. Insurance will pay value today at X years old and Y mileage. Not what you paid for it two or three years ago. If I'm wrong, I need your insurance company to insure my vehicles. . .

I just had someone hit me over the winter. One door was quoted from $750- $1200. Got a paint match, salvage door for around $150. Switched them in less than an hour, though the window regulator in it just failed so got to replace that too. Still under $200 for the door. The best thing about it was that the person who hit me was uninsured.

Paint labour alone at the recommended insurance shops will be like $4000

Two doors and the panels, with pillars will be around $1500 at BMW.

Insurance company will likely total that bad boy.

1. Car is over 10 years old and they would rather see you in new BMW spending more on monthly premiums than paying you to fix your car. Especially if you go thru the other person's insurance


2. An 06 325i is like $8000 to $10000. That damage is more than 50% the value of the car
