REPAIRABLE!.....................hmmmmm! No!
Technically speaking, yes, but it would cost you almost triple what the car is worth...... to repair it!

the only way you can repair that is to go buy another black e36 and keep the same number plate!!!!!!!

but i know how u feel my rear shocks were gone, it was pissin it down and i took a roundabout too fast racing another e36.. span and hot the curb. i couldnt stop it spinning once it had started but i did just about stop it going through the railing and down a hill. when i say. when i say just about i mean just about i have slight scratches on the rear bumper from where it grazed the railings.. was a close call.. wrecked my rim had to replace my shocks and nearly all the offside rear suspension from where it smacked the curb !!!!

Talking

i dunno about totalled...

take a close look... the alignment of the fender ends where the turn lights are are still pretty even - that tells me that the mainframe is still intact. I could be wrong because i can only see the outside and from 1 angle.

it looks bad in the photo but change hood, the front grille assembly and front frame, change whole bumper assembly, radiator and fans, maybe it's "saveable". In Asia, there is such a thing as a "nose cut". It's vitually unknown here in the West, but basically it is moving over the whole front end of another car to replace the damaged part/s.

Cost-wise, if u get replacements from the recycle shops, then u stand a chance... if u mean to buy piece-for-piece brand new; then take everyone else' advise... it will cost more to repair ;-)

where are you located? if u are selling, what price will you ask for it? :-)

i plan on getting it fixed. after a closer look it appears that olny the bumper, grill, hod, radiatio and fan are rooted, but im still not able to remove the hood. tho after i crashed it the engine was still running and sounded fine, so hopefully it is not damaged.
the headlights are fine and still work and the fenders and wheel alignment are fine as well.

I kinda thought it was repairable. It "looks" bad in the pic, but when u have the hood off, take a pic again. I think it's do-able ;-)

to remove the hood.. u'll probaby need to cut it out with power tools. Don't force anything so u don't to anymore damage to existing parts.

There's a place in Loganleigh, QLD that does nose cuts; so i presume that you have vehicle recycle places in Perth as well where u can obtain those.

Best of luck to you.
