It looks like your friend did his or her homework, it is the exact KBB book value. That means it a fair price, not a good price nor a bad price. If you are looking for a diesel, then it might be a...

It is against the law for a dealer to deny you warranty simply because someone other than the dealer did the work.

No, you can use a indy mechanic or do it yourself. All you need to be able to prove that the maintenance was done on time and done properly.

It looks like you need a need door panel, front fender, rim and some suspension components. I would fix it and see how it drives afterward before deciding on rather to sell it or not. I had a few...

There is a lot of variables when it comes to body repair, rather you use OEM parts and paint or not, dealer body shop vs indy body shop, even indy body shops can vary in quality and price.

The rear quarter panel will have to be repair, front quarter should be replace and the front bumper should be repaint. I see you are in GA, the labor is probably a bit cheaper down there.

There will be less contact patch for a period of time after your rotation, until the tires wear in. You might want to drive less aggressively during that time.

That's sounds about right, maybe a total of 4.5 to 5 thousand. Were the rims damage from the accident or are those curb rashes?

If you are an aggressive driver, you probably should not rotate the tire. I would instead check front wheel alignment due to the uneven wear.

What was the PSI of the tires before you pump it up?

BMW should have design the front parking sensors lower or have a wider angle to detect the curbs and the parking blocks like Mercedes does.

I am guessing that BMW either is not enforcing this requirement or some dealers are willing to take the chance, either way, competition is good for the consumers.

Yes, it take about 50 hours or so to burn them in, they will become a bit brighter and the color will shift whiter as well.
