Your Opinions? Hit a chunk of ice at speed--$8.6k damage...

Took out my driver's front wheel/tire, and lots of left-side suspension pieces.

I'd like your opinions:
What do you think, will she ever drive the same? Should I get rid of her?


Here's the claims adjuster's estimate of things that have to get fixed.

My opiinion: Winter driving's best done in a pickup or large SUV.

There's not much a 7,000 lb diesel can't goosh through, rain, sleet, or snow. Make it a 4x4 w/LSD and you got a go anywhere, mondo ground clearance, don' care if I bump anything, total comfort machine.

Yours is a case in point - sporty cars drive well on dry pavement at pleasant to warm temperatures.

I hit a chunk of ice that had fallen off of an overpass so hard it bounced the front end of the car clean off the ground, then slammed it back down--HARD. I expect anything short of a Baja 1000-ready off-roader would have some trouble with that.

I am finally getting my car tomorrow after a misfortune earlier last month, the car had the lower subframe and rails replaced. I will let you know if it drives the same.

Aha! That's bad luck, and outside BMW's brief. Guessing it was lying there....maybe fused to the road....vectored you & your ride t'6"+ altitude?

Thank you gentlemen, for your opinions.

I'm hoping it drives just like before when I get it back....otherwise I don't know what to replace it with.
My dilemma: I don't know if I like anything out right now that comes close the my current car's level of fit/finish/performance for anywhere near the price. Including the new F30.

If it's done well, it should be OK. Make sure you're happy with the result before signing off on the work.

A clean non accident 2007 E90 335i is worth ~$15K ($12->13K at current auction prices ). After that damage.. who knows?

$15K - $8.6K = $6.4K

If you can get a check for $8.6K I'd do that, sell the car for parts and get a new(er) car. Or keep the old one and DIY fix for a track car - I'll take it off your hands for $6.4K and even let you have a lap or two at the next track day

07 335i is worth WAY more than 15k. I still see them easily in the 20's

Try trading one in without buying another. Dealers typically ask for ~$5->6K more than they paid and settle for $3->4K more. Few will pay $20K for a six+ year old three series.

A 2007 is a 6-7 year old car. After 4 years it is worth 15-20k. After 7 probably 10-12.

Eh, insurance has already cut me a check for ~$8100.
I'm going to have them begin repairing it. If it turns out not to drive so well, I'll trade it in and get something else. Maybe a Jag XFR?

That sounds like you were lucky it was just the car and you weren't injured. This is just another reason I live in the south. Sorry but it is 68 and sunny today. Perfect top down weather for the Z.
