For a 93 and $7100, I'm surprised it wasn't totalled.
Very sorry to hear you were in an accident, these things happen; you're getting off much better than a lot of people, though.

Please use periods.

YEah, surprised it wasn't totalled... that's about the value of the car... also, taking out all those panels... was there any other damage? $7100 isn't bad at all for a t-boned bmw.

Since he's from Canada, that could be $7100 Canadian. At this moment about $6100 USD. Or am I wrong?

new paint for the entire car will total to somewhere around $3-4k i think and then replacement parts for external and internal and labor. that sounds like a lot, but its prolly about right.

sorry about the accident dude. but like Aether said, you're getting off much better than others on the boards who've been in an accident, so smile and be happy that you're getting some niiiice new paint, ahaha

cheers.

oh yeah, got any pics of the damage?

EDIT: found some in your vbGarage

Not sarcastic this time (I get that a lot). I really really like them. Makes you look twice - it's not like "Oh, look, eyebrows" but "Wait... are those... yeah, those are!" And I like that kind of attention better.

oh sh!t that pic hurts... I was t-boned in my 318 and you have to look at the upside, better to get t-boned in a bimmer than in a Hyundai.... sorry to here about the damage, happy to hear you're alright. Tough cars.
