Mein Auto: 2011 328 xdrive
In August 2011 with my car only having 9000 miles on it I got hit to tune of $26k in damage. I had it towed to the dealer which has a certified BMW repair shop on site and it took 10 weeks to repair. I was worried since I purchased my car that it would never be the same. Well I now have 37k on her and and she runs as if nothing ever happened. No rattles, still the original tires with no abnormal wear. I believe that had I not gone to a certified shop which did not use all new OEM parts and did not rebuild the front end on BMW frame alignment rack my car would have not survived the almost 30k additional miles since my accident without rattles or other major problems. The shop also emailed me pictures every few days of the build and encouraged me to come see it as often as I wanted. I guess what I am saying here is that taking a long time is not bad if they do it right he first time.
