That's the spirit! this would make a great DIY on the forum...
Actually rear hits on these cars are far worse to deal with than a frontWith any other car I'd say keep it if you bought it far greater than retail value. But for these cars I'd say get it off your hands asap.
I never shun from a car thats been in a fender bender provided it's around the rear or sides. But front hits I avoid all together - especially on these sensitive bytches.
FYI - The Logic 7 Amp is closer to $600 than it is $250 (from eBay)Good Morning All,
I found a NAV system on Ebay for $800 from an 05 745. It is being advertised as being compatible, but I have heard that if it isn't the exact same part number as the one that came out of the car, that it would require reprogramming? Not sure about this. I also found a CD changer for about $35. I can buy a primered fender for about $250 and a new primered hood for less than $500. I don't know yet if it would be just cheaper to have a body shop take out the rather small dents in these areas vice replacing and repainting. I plan on moving forward with taking the car to have it diagnosed, possibly as early as today. I think that the amplifier may also be missing which should be located next to the NAV system in the trunk. That is going to cost around $250, so quite a bit in parts so far. i will try to acquire the parts as needed if I can confirm the engine is good. I deally I will know this by Monday. Thanks for all the inputs. You guys are great. I appreciate all the help. This has been really stressful so far, so i am crossing my fingers as I wait for results from the diagnostic.
