Sucks bro, the good thing is the insurance company already has so much invested in it, they wont total it like they would have if it was in the initial damage report.:thumbup:

yea I had the same thing happen in my x5 and it turned out the engine was cracked since the insurance company already had 20grand in the rebuild i just got a brand new engine. i think the total damage on that crash was 34grand all said and done.:rotfl:

The car was tighter and drove better after the shop put the front end back together. Good body shops FTW.
