Tough call I'd bet...

If damage exceeds 3% (I believe this is the number... its been several years) of MSRP, BMW will replace the car with another unit and will determine what to do with the damaged car. For minor damage, they repair and then sell to a dealer as a "used" car with damage disclosure. Once it gets more severe, they might not repair and will scrap it.
