2 accidents during my ownership.
1. 2011: F350 drove into driver's door taking off the traffic light

Index of /2000-M5/accident-f350

I've replaced the door, there's still a small dent on rocker panel.
I have a door harness, door handle, and window regulator left over, will be included

2. 2013: My wife rear ended Suzuki Vitara taking off the light.

My insurance company totalled it in September 2013 after accident #2.
The only two things that needed replacing were hood and radiator support which I have replaced.

Pictures right after the accident are here:
Index of /2000-M5/accident-2013

Currently it could use new brakes, check engine light is on occasionally, has some vanos codes.
Hood had a dent which I didn't notice until I installed the hood, so I decided to hold off on paint. Maybe a CF hood?
PDC does not work, need new sensor which I have.

Lots more pictures of the car and it's progress/repairs/modifications since I've owned it:
