Two months ago, I was rear ended in my MINI, only 15 months old. At first, it seemed a simple issue of the bumper and panel, about $700-800 to repair. When the bumper was removed, the tire and wheel were damaged as well as a number of other things; the estimate was now in the $2500 range. No mention was made of the frame. Concerned that the frame was damaged, I decided to let it go. A beautiful Z4 was sitting in the lot when I drove in for the estimate, and I drove away in it. I drive long distances several times a year (FL to DC); a fragile car like the MINI was not a good idea. The Z4 is a thirsty little devil, but I feel so much safer in it.
