You have parts and labor, I suppose the dealership thought they could fix it so the extra for labor would have been less overhead for them. I have to ask though with that force required to snap that strut and collapse the tower what other pieces are bent or bowed, not just to the human eye but can be measured with the right tools?

You can easily run through $30 large on just parts and labor on the M5 (with no frame work). Absent a repair estimate from a BMW-certified collision repair shop, it is all pure conjecture.
That is my question exactly, if the frame is bent, even imperceptible to the human eye it will make repairs harder.
