Yeah, if it was a hardtop, the stiffer chassis would have enabled him to steer around the problem!

OP, I hope nobody was hurt and you have insurance. The rest doesn't matter. Get a hardtop next time.

This is the E90/92/93 forum. You crashed an E46. I personally don't think it's a big deal since you mean well, but technically, you are in the wrong place...
