With all due respect I thought the insurance conversation was on topic. Part of this process will involve insurance and IMO it is important for members to know that one persons opinion/experience with an insurance company is not always the case. Not a big deal. I'm done.

Waiting for an update like the rest.

I agree that we can all learn something about dealing with insurance companies and BMW dealers alike. I love this forum but I'm a bit surprised at the amount of censorship going on here, I belong to a lot of forums but nothing like this anywhere else. I completely understand when people begin to rant about religion and politics, however, in this case I believe we were on topic. Again I love this forum and I'm not out to offend anyone.

I have only been around for a few months, but I am still stunned by some things that the Admins do. Deleting MANY posts, no swear words? What is this? A playground for kids or adults? Why the F**K cant I swear?

The posts weren't on-topic - they were discussing insurance companies being evil.

If you would like to continue that discussion I'll be happy to copy those posts to a separate thread and post a link in this thread.

The OP is only going to have any value of this thread if it's kept focussed on the situation at hand. Not by going off on all kinds of wild tangents. That's why this thread receives additional moderation attention to keep it on-topic. Also, threads with many views from external sources (320,000 views and counting) tend to go off the rails pretty quickly of their own accord.

If you feel the need to discuss any other subjects (e.g. moderation on this messageboard) then there's an Off Topic forum especially for that purpose.

Update Six

As you probably guessed the car has been written off as totaled. There is still no response from the crash dealership and I don't expect there to be one. They never did the right thing from the beginning so why would they now. Really bothers me how someone can not care about destroying your your property and then expect you to be happy with a low ball insurance settlement. There has not been a settlement by the way. I would like to say that BMWNA is extremely unhappy with the crash dealership and have been very supportive. However the extent of their support is not clear at this time. BMWNA has stated to me that they are doing an internal investigation into the accident and this dealerships practices. I will let you know more when I know.

Thank you for all the support!

I've obviously not seen the car but it seems shocking that its written off for that. Hope someone managed to buy it off whichever insurance company ends up with it and fixes it up.

Bottom line: I guess you are hoping that the crash dealership will pony up the cash for a replacement car as it certainly shouldn't be coming off your insurance.
