Wowsers.. Sucks to lose such a beauty over something that was totally out of your control but at least things worked out for the better with you getting full value through insurance. Good luck with your next ride..

Thanks. I drove the C63 sedan tonight and was pretty impressed, we'll see how the other test drives go. I have a feeling I'll be back into an F80 M3 before too long either way.

C63 is a nice car but lacks the balance of an M3. For me it wouldn't be a valid substitute, although the torque is nice.

From the pics it doesn't look like a total loss, but great they are paying you the cars value.. So time to get another one

PS: see the recent video of the m3 vs c63 vs IsF on the track. Power is nothing without control

Sorry to see that, but the car did its job and you're here to tell us about it, so it's all good.

Yeah sorry about your misfortune. On the 8th of this month someone hit my baby. It didn't total in my case though and am still waiting on my car. Best of luck man. That sucks for sure.

The good news: you lived, you get a change to go shopping again and you're not charged for the accident. The bad news: you got to say goodbye to a friend who saved your live.

Better Days are Ahead!

OP, I'm sorry to read and see what happened to your M3. Hopefully you can find a replacement.

I hear you, its wouldn't really be a substitute for the M3 as that would be near impossible... moreso looking for something different for a while pending the F80 M3. I don't really track my car so as a daily driver the C63 may work for me... in my test yesterday I found it drove very well (relatively comparable to the M3 in street/highway driving) but the huge power/torque certainly is nice to have too.

I will have a few things to sell yes... assuming I go with something other than an M3 I will have a few sets of rims/tires to sell along with some other bits and pieces. PM me and I'll let you know what I have.

Long story short a minivan made an illegal left turn in front of me, I braked hard but there was no chance of stopping in time. I hit her dead on in the side and my airbags went off. Other driver was charged/at fault (of course) and I just got word back late yesterday from the appraiser that they are writing off my 2011 E90 M3 due to frame damage. Went by the auto body place this morning to pickup my plates and personal belongings out of the car... it is a sad day my friends.


Upside is that my insurance company is paying the full/new value of the car as its within 2 years of new... plus better to get a new car then deal with the hassles of reduced value on trade in etc.

Let the new car shopping commence... I've had two E90 M3s (2008 and 2011) so I'm most likely looking elsewhere for now until the F80 M3 comes out later next year. Driving a C63 AMG tonight and making plans to test out some other rides... we'll see where I end up for now.

Apparently its an "EZ" fix

Shit like this makes me cringe because the original M3 is gone forever, and the thought of a total loss has increased my "defensive driver" instincts despite the M3 beckoning me to stop being such a pussy and drive!
