Took nearly three weeks to repair the car, they replaced both doors with new doors, replaced the alloy wheel with a new wheel and did some suspension repairs. This all happened without any fuss or problems with the insurer (BMW Insurance - Australia through Alliance Insurance), no excess paid by me and no loss of my no-claim bonus. So very happy with the insurance company and the panel beaters.
As you would expect I have put a few more miles on her (Goldie) since last week. I took me a day to get used to the brakes and steering after driving a Pulsar for three weeks.
Hopefully I will not have a need to post any more accident photos in the future but if it does happen I'm glad I will be driving an e34.
Cheers and safe driving, Mark1969.
