I am curious as to why the rear axle carrier, differential and fuel tank need to be replaced... is there damage to the subframe (rear axle carrier)? Is there a puncture in the fuel tank? The differential looks to be hanging but is it destroyed? Was it dragged on the road? From the pictures, you have a broken diff bolt - a common problem with 6mt e9x m3s. The bolt is a couple bucks to replace. Unless your subframe is bent/damaged, I don't know why everything has to be replaced.
This. Plus damage to undercarriage could have happened during towing. Hitting something hard enough to shear those bolts would have done significantly more damage. Dealer is a weasel.
