Ouch! I take no comfort but do commiserate.

Eastbound toll rd exit at centreville rd. It's a double left turn lane. I was in the right lane and lady in the left lane was lost and tried to go straight to get back on the toll rd. I just got the car back. New door, fender, side skirt (forget the technical name), and wheel. My adjuster was excellent. The wheel was barely damaged and he got me a new one anyways. He told the body shop to get new parts from BMW no matter the amount of damage. D&V autobody did an excellent job. Can't even tell now.

Hopefully over time I'll forget that it's damaged goods. If not I'll trade in and order another one.

Sorry OP didn't mean to thread jack. No matter the amount of damage or how soon, that first ding always hurts bad.

Know the location very well. I was rear-ended at 4 months ownership on Jermantown Road in Vienna. Nobody pays attention to driving.

My sympathies to you and the OP.

To compete with the likes of re-badge brands like Audi, Acura, Lexus, Infiniti, and Cadillac, they allow people to decompose the car down to a $30,000 stripper that's low on performance and above average on comfort. BMW doesn't set out to build a car with a weak engine, soft suspension, and dim headlights. That's not their purpose, not their mission, not their reputation. Unlike Mercedes Benz, BMW doesn't have a CL-A equivalent, so they let the college kids and empty-nesters strip a 328i bare.

"Camaro" has no place being discussed in a BMW forum.

320i=CLA, no?

Ah, so a 5 Series is, at heart, an $80K German luxury car that is designed for Sheiks.

I'll take it.

Happy to report I got my dreamboat back and returned the Camaro before its door could decapitate me.
Hate when my Bimmer is in the shop!
