335i nearly written off by rock!

Incident happened 9 months ago, two months after I bought the car, and I must admit I could hardly stomach to watch this video at the time.

I was thinking about it the other day, though, and figured I would post it here and show the incident too. Be careful out there.



Finally, the car. I guess that helps with the story.

Wow can't really see much from the dash cam accept the bump, but that really tore up the car - what was the final bill?

Ouch... tragic

Was this covered by your insurer?
Hope there was a happy ending

Total bill was 10,500 or 16,000 dollars if I'm getting the conversion right.

Main cost was the new DCT.

I lost her for a month, but that was partly due to Christmas and the need to source the new DCT or part o itf, from Germany. I was away on holiday, so it wasn't the worst time.

Very glad to get her back!
All paid by insurance, less excess

Yes, the replacement parts are what the guy itemises at the end, obviously confirmed by the engineer representing the insurance company.
