Unhappy M3 E92

i have had my M3 E92 saloon for 5 months and love it
but yesterday when i had the traction control in MDM mode i ended up sliding it around a bend a bit too far and hit the kerb with both front and rear wheels at about 60mph

i have had the tracking and wheels aligned by a tyre garage who said the alloys are slightly buckled but the DCS warning light is on and DCS is permanently off.
Has any one got any advice or previous experience of this?
i am looking for any ideas on how expensive this could be and if i need to take it to a main dealer?

thanks

I think you're dealing with this with a little too much laid back approach. It's serious.

happened to me in 328 and 335. dont drive on it or youll cause more damage. needs to be realigned if nothing broke but chances are the lower control arm is broken

thanks. no pics but it doesnt really look bad anyway. i will take it to BMW to get it checked out

if you hit a curb at 60mph, then there is def some serious suspension damages.. Also seems fitting with your screename.

I'm guessing subframe damage. And what does buckling of the alloys mean?
