Would you believe I did something similar, at very low speed with a Kangaroo when in Australia driving a Z4 with the roof down. Only damage was the kidney grill which still had all its clips intact. Just the chrome surround was cleanly snapped in one place...fixed with superglue. Not even a dent! The 'Roo survived to live another day thankfully.
@ NorthumbriaBorders - Originally from NW Cumbria, mate, just outside Workington hence why I was up there over the weekend. Could see Scotland a treat over the Solway from the Hunday Manor on Sunday morning!
2001 E39 M5 : Silverstone Blue, 19" Breyton Spirits (horribly rashed...), black kidney grilles (one broken...), black and white badging (fading fast...), Philips Silverline Indicator Bulbs, Alpine KCA-420i (in a box in the house) and Xmas-pressie iPod Classic (just need Intravee II now...), otherwise standard (but who knows...)
"I look at it like this. Owning an M5 is kind of like dating a slamming hot big-t...ed blonde, who is a pain in the *****, drains your cash, but screws like there's no tomorrow. Owning a Honda Civic or the like, is akin to dating a girl who is fat, ugly, smells a bit where she shouldn't, is a cheap date and doesn't screw at all (you don't mind). So yeah, I'll take the blonde." (Courtsey of Jetpilot718)

Not THE most awesome website in the world (I'm surprised the webdesigners actually put their name at the bottom) but good to know of another decent BMW shop in that neck of the woods should I ever need one.

Avus blue with H&S exhaust? Bloke called John? I used to work with his mate. It has 19" shnitzers or something doesnt it? I was trying to get him to sell me his stock rims a while back when mine were getting refurbed. I heard he kept them so might try and get them off him again. How is it treating you?
