Also consider the 2011 model is near the end of its warranty, so any problems from the accident regardless if repaired by a BMW dealer will be off their books.

I also question accidents as the damage breaks the rust proof seals. You normally have premature rust compared to other accident free cars.
In the US the warranty is four years so he would be good through 2015 or later depending on the "in-service" date.
