Repair Costs? 2014 335i collision

I'm bringing my 2014 335i into the shop tomorrow for estimates and I'm hoping someone can give me an idea of what the expected costs should be and whether or not you would total it.
Unfortunately I was driving home the other night when I struck a deer crossing the interstate at around 70+ mph. Miraculously I was able to continue driving the car home, but the deer basically cleaned out the entire front of the car on the driver side and managed to do quite a bit of damage to the driver side door as well. From what I can tell, the driver side panel and door will need to be replaced, along with the hood, front bumper, front kidney grilles, driver side headlight and fog lamp, parking assistance sensors, etc. Thanks for any help/info you can provide.

my guess will be about 12k+
lots of expensive parts and labor.
headlamp alone is 1600 list
door door is 800, fender 500, hood 2k
etc

paint and labor tends to run 3X the part price in general ie: bumper skin is about 700, but replacement runs about 2100, 1400 of paint and labor.

We were deered 3 years ago with damage much like that on the right side. All new parts were used for a total of $7k. Hidden damage will up the cost. Don't go cheap with after market parts.

My sympathies. It is very scary when it happens. That is why I added nightvision to my 530e. Nightvision is not a perfect solution but it can definitely help.

I suspect that your insurance carrier will total the car.

Mein Auto:
pics donīt help but i think you can save a lot of money if you know what you are doing.
If you have some mechanic skills i think the majority of work can be done at home
Lot of f30 used parts in good condition on ebay

Canīt see if your front bumper is cracked or can be reused
you can buy one in good condition 400-500 on ebay, if you are lucky the same color.
Fender i think 250 on ebay, same with color
headlight 300-400
grille and fog light maybe 100-200
Door is a little more complicated but you can buy one complete for 700 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Left-Front-...temCondition=4
this are the more important parts.
On small parts, caps, inner fender, clips, etc maybe 300-500

If you are patient and have luck (buy all same color as your car) you can repair it with 2000-3000 on your own.
If you need a paint shop work i donīt konw how much can cost, iīm from other country

doesn't matter what we think, it matters what is. 3 pix aren't gonna give you any reliable info from any folks on here. Whether it is considered totaled is also your insurance company's determination not what some drunk saps respond to you here. Good luck.

BTW, why do all the trees in MN point toward Canada, ND, SD, Sconsin, and IA?
