She died tonight along with my buddy's e36m

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Everyone was ok but someone wasn't paying attention and rear ended my buddies e36m on the right rear fender and bounced into the drivers side of my car. Ended up with his mazda 6 between us. Not sure if it's totaled but I hope so. First accident. Kind of shocked. I haven't been this bummed in a long time. Bought it used and I had her exactly how I wanted her too every option to the T with a 6spd and AW on blk.

Thanks. Not sure what to do really. Got a lot of pictures but I haven't spoke to my insurance company yet. Just happened like 3 hours ago.

Thanks. My buddy who knows more about cars than me says the side rocker is pushed in so it should total. I figure that would be best. I don't want to make her suffer more than necessary.

Sorry to see that man, hope everything works out for you.

If you do get it repaired, let us know where you take it. Always interested in knowing good body shops in the D, just in case.

Best of luck.

well, you seem pretty calm. I would be pissed and probably would have slammed the Mazda driver against his hood, body slam, MMA style.....ok, maybe that's a bit much But glad you're ok. I got into a terrible accident last year in my M and it was declared a total wreck. And if you search the forum for posts in my name I did put up some pics of the accident. If you look at them you'll feel much better (and luckier!)

Hopefully they declare it a total wreck and you can hop into a new ride! Things always happen for a reason, don't sweat it
