Sad day for me yesterday. (pictures fixed)

Lady cut me off coming out of a 7 eleven parking lot. My son and I are good. Just a little sore.

Well I see the words 'Attached images' in your post, but I can't see them. Not sure if it's me or your post. In either case I'm sorry. Total loss or unknown?

Yes that's the plan. Would be too much of a loss on the aftermarket parts if I didn't.

Glad youíre both ok, looks a relatively innocuous accident so very disappointing if the carís totalled.

I didn't know your son was with you. With the passenger airbag deployed, I should have asked. Hope both of you are ok.

Yeah. It busted his nose. Got a contact burn on his nose from the airbag and was bleeding all over the place. Stopped it quickly though. Glad that's all it was.

Hi,

Glad you are both ok if a little knocked/sore. Hopefully your insurance company will allow you to purchase the car back so it's now the rigmarole of paperwork etc to sort it all out.

Hopefully, it'll be a relatively straightforward repair as there's nothing M5 specific on the exterior (except the lower front grille and Kidney grille) which means you potentially could pick up parts relatively cheaply. Potential concern is if there's any chassis damage/bending that's occurred as that'll be more difficult and costly to fix.

Hope things do work out well and smoothly and you can have everything fixed and be back on the road relatively quickly

Cheers, Dennis!
