Frame Damage

My M3 CS was hit at an intersection this morning. I am concerned the unibody was damaged and will not be square after repairs. Uninsured motorist hit me.

Please offer advice to help me deal with the insurance adjuster. I have used the car for 3 HPDE events since purchasing it and am intent on proper alignment, having installed camber plates and having the alignment set by a track shop.

Sorry to see this man. I hope you're not seriously injured. I had my M3CS totaled back in April after only having it for 2 weeks. I suffered some serious injuries even though I felt completely fine after the accident. Insurance totaled it out because of frame damage. Lady ran a red light and t-boned me at 35mph. As far as dealing with the adjuster just let them know those HRE's are expensive as hell. Did you lease? Here are some pics.

Thank you for telling me this. Very similar accident in terms of speed and impact. I hope you are ok now. I got hit just several feet further rearward with the wheel taking most of the impact, spun 360 over a curb.

Would you PM me so I can get some advice from someone who has (unfortunately) been there?
