I feel your pain. FL is full of old farts that should no way be driving. Gun control? We need old fart driving control. I know people they've killed, young people on mopeds that went to HS with me. ran them down didn't see them. I literally get behind old folks every day going to work. 55mph zone, clear day, they're doing 24mph. At some point, you gotta say it's over no matter what, F'k it I'm taking them out too.

I hope you are right and it is totaled. Your life will be much easier if you do not have to go through a major repair.

In 2007 I had a worse accident in my 335i. The estimator caluclated the damage was just under the total value. So I went through six months of hell and then a 3.5 year long legal battle with BMW NA. At the end of the whole process (4 years later), I got my $30K legal bill paid and the insurance and BMW NA split the cost of the almost $50K repair. That's right 50K to repair a 50K car.

My advice, pray, plead, and/or bribe the adjustor to total it. Oh one more thing to watch out for, if you don't get it totaled, your insurance will most likely only pay for 30 days of a rental car. This repair will be a lot more than 30 days. It will take that long to get all the parts in from Germany.

Good Luck!

Just a stress break on the window. My seat is back far enough that my head can't hit the windshield unless i come out of my seat. Airbag definitely nailed me in the face and blew off my sunglasses.

Most likely going to look for another 335 manual. Figure im getting around $20,000 for the car as it was a 07 with 80,400 miles so that is a nice size down payment for one. Just have to argue with insurance most likely to get my money back for all the repairs i have been doing over the last month and a half. Water pump, t-stat, tires, etc.

I agree completely.

Two years ago my wife and I were waiting to make a left turn at a light. We had a solid green and there was an Acura MDX coming towards us preventing us from turning. As the MDX crossed the intersection, an old lady in a minivan ran the red light at what seemed like 60 - 70 mph, T-boned the MDX, and sent it spinning into our car. The poor lady driving the MDX ended up in the passenger seat (don't think she was wearing a seatbelt). The minivan continued straight and ended up hitting a utility pole. Our car ('08 Accord coupe) had over 10k in damage. Luckily we escaped with only minor injuries. Old lady gets out of the van and says "what just happened?". I wanted to strangle her to prevent her from nearly killing anyone else.

The problem here in Florida is that they don't require periodic retesting of elderly drivers like some other states do. I believe they renew their license every 8 or 10 years just like the rest of the population and they never have to be retested unless they get into a wreck (when it may already be too late). This is compounded by the large percentage of drivers being elderly. This needs to be changed before too many more innocent people are killed.

gotcha. since the new f series m3-4s are comin out soon you can also get a really nice cpoed m3 for a relatively good price. they had one at a very high end local dealership by me, rallye, for about 38k only thing that was missing was nav and it had very low miles around 25k. keep in mind that was sticker as well so
