Should be a total lost but since the damage is on the rear, not the engine compartment; it wouldn't be such a bad deal for people who are into salvaged vehicle title. Of course it will be very difficult when re-selling unless your car is suddenly lost and the insurance will have to pay you for the value of your vehicle.

its not as bad as you think. as long as there is no suspension damage you should be ok. car needs left side corner panel ,bumper, trunk and rear glass. best thing is to buy these used . plus you will also need a new floor pan for the trunk and pray to gd that all the wiring is still working and there are no computers damaged. should run from 10k and up

the body is alumni and its hard to work with. i had little fender bender on my 7series couple years ago and had to do some body work. it is pain in the a**
that car to fix it would cost same price as you bought it and resale value is little.
you would make more money in parting out.
