Wow! By the wheels and tail lights I'd say e46 sedan.

Driven that road many times, that is a pretty treacherous stretch, the bridges are narrow, the road is curvy, and people haul butt. It's particularly bad going southbound, because it's downhill, and people get going a lot faster.

Great job by the rescue personnel and the Seabees. Sounds like the family will recover.

There is always accidents in that area it seems like. Im from Oxnard so I have drove that stretch many many many times.

Honestly if I am not mistaken that bumper cannot be from a sedan so I would think x if not 118d which i highly doubt they had. Also look at the tail light its way to long for a sedan.

Another article said it was a 3 series. Not sure which one.

Looks like an Orient Blue E46 325i to me. Those tail lights are unmistakable and the wheels are also right for it.

There is a letter from the owner of this vehicle, Carrie Johnson, in the latest BMW Magazine (Autumn/Winter 2012). It was indeed an Orient Blue E46 325i, "Old Blue."

Quote:

When I purchased my BMW 325i 11 years ago, I wasn't going for status or glamor. Truth be told, I wasn't even necessarily going for a BMW. What I wanted as the safest car my bank account could float.

And people asked why I would buy a used BMW vs a new lesser car......SAFETY. (oh, and it's fun to drive) :thumbup:
