Mein Auto: 1994 BMW 525i
1994 BMW 525i - now its a project...

I'll post some pics later, but I got a decent running model with only minor repairs needed... and then I rear-ended someone. Bent up the driver's side fender, pushed in the lights on that side. Slightly bent the front of the hood - so now its a project to restore it's shape AND fix the little things that was wrong with it when I got it (like I need anything extra to do with my time... jeez!). The good part is that it mechanically survived the crash - lights work (although one is pointing slightly upwards), only cosmetically damaged.

I'll need some help replacing or repairing the fender, grille, and there is a small crack with missing chunks in the top corner of my rear bumper (pre-existing). I post the pics soon...

Okay I found one pic, I'll add more later:

This shows some of the damage made by my inattentiveness...
