Damn, looks like it could have been a whole lot worse! It would appear from the pics that both fenders and windshield weren't damaged. Best of luck in the repair!

Luckily it didn't go thru the windshield, and more importantly you aren't hurt!

That sucks...the deer really f'd up your hood. What's the damage under the hood?

I've hit three deer in my lifetime, only one in a BMW. No damage to me, lots of damage to my car...and the deer.

Ouch.... Good thing you are alright.

Is insurance going to cover that? Hopefully so!

Unhappy oooooOOOOOhhhhh.... "Snap" Dude that sucks A$$

Glad your okay guy. Your poor M3 well at least it can be fixed. Once you do get it fixed you might want to get some Dear whistlers. I put some on my M3 just in case because there are some pretty big deer out here on the back roads. here is a pic of mine they are a little hard to see but one of them is located at the main air intake driver side then you will see the other one on the passenger side the things in the middle are police laser gun jammers not them . Good luck with getting your M3 repaired once again.

in germany they charge you 250 euro per deer that you kill if there is a sign on the road warning of deer/animals in the area. like the damage to your bmw isn't enough??

Jeez, and you just put your parts on... Sorry to hear that. Georgia is notorious for our deer population. Generally I am not a fan of hunting, but this makes it seem much, much better. I guess you won't be around Sunday...
