The entire roof needs done, the trim and the door. It's going to be a lot.

Hopefully it will be done quickly to a high standard.
Not forgetting the dent in the bonnet

Feel for you dude. I've been really worried about this as we lost a tile about 6months ago and it wasn't even windy.

Feel for you fella, that's bad.

Just had the bumper replaced on mine following an accident, BMW charged 2,100, so I think it's going to be mega bucks for this damage

Really sorry to see this.

I was the lucky one Kerr referred to above - part of a tile hit the rear window of my TT but miraculously did no damage. Lots of damage to my roof (and, I have just come back from a week in Ireland to find that another stormy night has done more damage whilst we were away...we had just got the previous damage repaired!).

I was very lucky re the car. As said, at least no-one was hurt and the car will get sorted....prob to the cost of increased premiums though.
Still missing my E92 335i M Sport!

I've heard of a few friends having similar problems and it's ramping up their car insurance by having to claim. If you keep your car on the drive like I do, it might be a good idea to get your roof checked out (as I have) to prevent your cars from sustaining any similar damage.

I found the following website really useful as I'm hardly the most knowledgeable person when it comes to roofing or any home maintenance. www.roofapedia.com is really accessible and helpful and I asked them a question on twitter which they got right back to - very helpful!
