Exclamation Suspension needs, Heeeelp!

Hi all, I got my M from a fast n furious dumb @55 who had (in an attempt to look cool) cut the coils on this car and failed to mention that was how he had lowered it. (instead of spending a teeny bit of cash and just buy some good ones). Anyway this made the ride so hard that I could feel a shadow when I ran over it! Well to get to the point I hydroplaned the car while exiting the highway, spun the car, and bashed a curb bending everything on my left rear. I'm not a wealthy person in the least and my dealership wants $2300 for one part. (WHICH IS HALF OF THE CARS WORTH!) can anyone help with maybe used parts or have info of what might be interchangeable seeing as how there aren't ant M3's in these part yards where I live

Sorry to hear of your misfortune. What parts are you looking for?

Usually when you hit a curb with the rear wheel, you bend the lower control arm, or upper control arm, or the anti roll bar, and possibly the subframe.

What, exactly did the dealer say?

I didn't dare take it to the dealer, ( couldn't have afforded it lol),but my mechanic has said the I need EVERYTHING! As luck turned out, I was shopping on eBay and found someone with 10! M's and was able to buy the entire suspension for 400 bucks
