Since this is most likely covered under comprehensive, make sure OEM parts are used. They will line up better.

Hopefully you have less damage than mine!

Good luck!

'94 530i

Nobody was injured, deer was killed.

I haven't seen the damage since she's out of town, but it sounds more like the deer hit her, since most, if not all of the damage was done to the drivers side front fender.

Car still drives fine - nothing touching the tire, no fluid leaks and the airbag did NOT deploy.

I'm going to have the car fixed. What sort of potential 'hidden' damage should I be aware of? Any help would be appreciated.
