One of my friend had one of the first big crashes in E46 (August 1998, 328i, black, Switzerland) : he was just going home at 5 am, and he blocked the speed at 140 kph ; then he fell sleeping ...
And the car hurt the motorway huge : the wheel which hurted was instantly broken out, and make the car do 3-4 somersaults (at 140 kph, 90 mph..) on the road !!!
They were two in the car and just one had a bit his hand hurt... airbags did well
The car was then disassembled... : the upper deck was broken..
I've seen the car after the crash, and was astonished to see that the all interior was like new !!
Really very safe car no?
