State Farm Insurance stuff.. (archive)

Hi All,

as you know (or may not know) State Farm has been getting a lot of attention lately (at least in the SF Bay Area) for their insurance repair policies forcing people to use sub-OEM standard parts, rebuilt parts, etc to repair damaged car. (refused to let customers use OEM or OEM-standard parts if some substitutes were available, or somesuch)

Their justification is "we haven't had any complaints by the customer"... but wondered if those with sub-standard parts installed actually knew about that or not...

Anyway, my question is, those out there with State Farm for their car insurance, and had their bimmer serviced using their insurance have any comments? I may have to change my insurance policy to State Farm, and was curious how the bimmer community regards this recent turn of events... I'm not sure if I want to insure my "sailing in Atlantic" E46 with a company that may replace my car parts with something other than BMW-original parts (in an event of unfortunate crashes/vandalisms... yet to happen here, but hey, that's what insurances are for, right?)
