Fender Bender--What to have checked?
Yesterday a Mercedes G500 decided to crash into the back passenger side of my beloved E39 and I am wondering what things I should make sure to have the body shop and mechanic take a look at. The damage is immediately behind the rear wheel and part of the fender is crushed in. There is a nice mark on the tire but the rims escaped with only a slight abrasion. The side of the trunk where the battery is stored is crushed in about 2 inches. Also, is there any reason why I couldn't switch to an M5 bumper seeing as it needs to be replaced anyways? If anyone knows a reputable body shop in Denver or Boulder Colorado that I can take it to it would be appreciated. Thanks!
