Awesome!
When is it supposed to be delivered by?
I will have my car back by the end of the month... hit a pothole that caused some significant damage tire rim underneath and to body. Taking about a month for my dealer to get parts from BMW in Germany bc of unavailability of 4 series parts. When I get it back loaded with the m performance body work, it will def send a chill down my spine as they bring it around.

Wow sorry to hear that happened.

Any pictures of the damage from the pot hole?
Hopefully turn around time on all of that is reasonable.

Yeah, the estimate was insane... Broken suspension, shocks, controller arm, rim, tire, undercarraige, wheel well everything.....I didnt even know such a thing was possible from a pot hole. One guy told me he has been seeing airbags deployed because the impact is so hard. I miss my boy blue, hopefully Itll only be a few more weeks.

ouch, brutal! was the pothole damage warrantied? We're going to need pics of the kit, you know that ;)
My insurance estimate was almost 9000.... I will have pics of the kit and video for the sound of the power kit with the exhaust. It will be finallly pieced all together over 4 wheels

when the shocks blew of the pot hole... the body lowered enough off the impact where the spinning tire made contact with the moldings causing the denting in effect and black scuffs. thats what they told me.

not to doubt what the technicians have said, I just cant see the molding or tires causing those scuffs unless they came out of the wheel well :confused: But maybe I'm just having trouble visualizing...

the BMW 19" Light Alloy Wheel Double-spoke Style442 M with Mixed Performance Tires do protrude out of the wheelwells a tad at the corners. A 435 M sport with sport tires isnt exactly a moms minivan with narrow 16 inchers where are the wheels are all safe and sound inside the well. Basically the car collapsed on that wheel causing the dented panels...those black marks are actually rubber scuff marks, not paint damage scuff like if you were to scrape concrete. Crazy I know....I cant image it myself.
