I liked the f10s until my brother in law pointed something out, now I can't ignore it... the speakers in the front doors by the side mirrors - look below where the speaker housing meets the door. You...

Roughly 170 mph in my m5, it still had a lot left too.
In my old 540i6 I hit the stock limiter around 155 mph.

In terms of the damage, it looks driveable. I would just be sure that no fluids (oil/coolant) are leaking.

In Canada, msport models mostly came with 17" style 66s. In the USA, iirc the only non m5 e39 with 18" wheels was the 2003 540i mtech with 18"...
