BMW Assist did not come online, I don't think I had that feature.

I saw him in my peripherals at the last minute but did not have time to react before the collision. I believe I veered slightly to the left which caused me to spin out a bit, jump up the curb and come to rest after hitting the streetlight.

So far I have been dealing with MY insurance company regarding compensation for the vehicle and I'm sure they will subrogate with the at-fault party's insurance company in the future.
Very glad to hear things are going well.

What are the extras you've done to the car?

Present - '06 E90 330i sport; Past - '04 E46 ZHP, '00 E46 328i
