BMW M4 in a ditch

Another day another new M4 crashed. This time around the drive got a little pedal happy and slide off into a ditch, or mini Grand Canyon. It is hard to make out the plate but it looks to be outside the US.

Maybe the owner just wanted to check out the exhaust system and limited slip diff and thought this would be easier then putting it up on a lift.

While the rear is in good shape I wouldn't be surprised if there is serious frame and engine damage. What do you think, is it totaled?

The pictures are not good enough to determine the extent of the damage, however, there's a 98.7% chance it's not totaled.

No airbags went off, so wasn't going that fast.

This is not in the U.S. The tag is euro.

I kind of doubt it. It just needs to be dusted off!

I've got 99 problems but the ditch ain't one. Having never made that "journey" myself, I can't say whether it's totaled. Hoping it isn't.

Far from totaled I would say. Minor damage...not sure if headlights were damaged (hard to tell from pic)...but all in all just a good tow truck to pull her out n set her free again.

No skid marks in grass, windshield not busted.... Looks like it was placed there for the new Euro version of candid camera!

I think it'll fit in my E30 a bit better.
