I think you will find it will be more of a total rapage by insurance.

If you are going to part out, I will take the front wind shield.

Was that a G35 that you rear ended?
What were you doing? eating? make up? answering your cell phone? texting? twittering? changing the radio station? connecting your iPod? your coffee spilled on your crotch?
I'm sure the cops ask you all that already, glad everyone is okay.

Drive Safe and God forbid next time get a tan interior so I can have proper dibs.

A very soft and heartfelt "Oh no!" escaped my lips when I saw the pic. Such awfulness! I hate seeing wrecked BMWs, and after the few close calls I encountered today, I can't help but feel that could have been me.

Hopefully everything gets reconciled to your liking.

Whatcha gonna get next??

Ouch... Did that pickup not hit the brakes at all and just plow everybody at a stop sign/light or did you have to make a sudden stop and not everybody was able to slow down enough?

4 car pileup? Ouch. Also, your expansion tank is leaking, you might wanna look into that.

I hope you weren't injured. But as Ryan said, what you gonna get next?

Nobody is crying the picture.

Nah--only if you let it be. I got $10k out of a nine year old 323i with 90k miles.

Of course, that was a straightforward comprehensive claim. Collisions can be a lot more difficult to deal with.

Just pulled out of the gas station (just filled up) got in line at a stop light behind two other vehicles. A Chevy SUV and a Jeep Commander. The Infinity pulled in behind us. The truck you see is a Ford F-350 Super Cab with a lift kit. Police say he was doing 60+ (speed limit 40 in that area) and never touched the breaks. No skid marks. Chain reaction got all four of us at the light. The trunk of the Infinty was pushed into the back seat and agianst the the back of the front seats. The driver of the Infinty had to be cut out but everyone was ok. The front of my Bimmer went under the back bumper of the Jeep. No airbag deployment on any vehicle.

The driver of the Truck was driving with (get this) No Insurance, expired registration, on an alcohol restricted license and was suppose to have an ignition interlock device on his vehicle of which he had none. He was arrested for a DUI (number 3 in less than nine years) and cited for all the other infractions.

Truck was at fault. We were just waiting at a light. Driver of truck was arrested for DUI.

Seeing we still have the Z4 (2006) and we purchased a 95 325i as project car for my son and I to work on (will become his when he graduates) and I have a Jeep that I use for work we aren't going to replace with another BMW.

My wife took an H3 Hummer for a test drive and I think she liked it.

Insurance (my insurance since the poop stain that hit us didn't have any) settled the total loss at just under 20K.
