Had a 328 for 3 weeks...

And from the looks of it, it's bye bye for this one.

Time for a new 4-door 3-series, I never like this one that much anyway. Maybe black/brown is the next grocery getter color...

At the end of the day two things matter:

1) Everyone was totally fine and it looks a lot worse than it was
2) Thank God I wasn't in my brand new M3

Driving 30 at night, guy in front of me braked suddenly with no taillights (had brake lights) - my reaction time from gas to brake was 2-seconds, not enough to stop.

Walked out seconds after impact, lit a cigarette - passers by looking at me like I was completely insane.

Sounds like you were tailgating.

Glad everyone is OK.

Unless they can document no tail lights the ficked finger of fate(guilt) will point at you. Unless yours is a no fault state. Glad all are OK

^^ Yeah, usually the case. Maybe they'll spread guilt to both parties, 70/30, 60/40, who knows.

At the end of the day, I walked out with a sore hand and a small airbag burn.

no offense, but that doesn't look like 30mph
I've smashed someone up @ 70km/h and it didn't look that bad..
I've been in a 5 car pile up and it didn't look that bad...

what was he driving? a brick wall? :/

glad to hear you're ok though and that insurance will cover it.. sorry about the car

PS: I don';t mean to come off as a prick.. just very very curious how that could have happened @ 30mph it seems like way too much damage.
