BMW Performance front bumper ($500ish)
BMW Performance side skirts ($500ish)
CF vented hood ($700ish)
M3-style fenders from Schmiedmann ($800ish)
Upgraded FMIC, since yours was probably damaged ($700ish)
Aftermarket wheels of your choice

(add in the cost of paint)
Overall, I think you might actually end up spending less this way.

Come to think of it, it sounds like you're getting a great opportunity to do mods for which the rest of us have to pay full price.
Thanks for the info. I will be getting as many after market parts as possible as long as this thing isn't totaled out. I should know in a few days, I'll keep you all updated.
