sigh, you're probably right, but after 4 months of waiting, I'm just glad to get my car back. Plus, my car is on the edge of totaled status, so I don't want any more costs to be reported to the insurance company.

Just found out from the shop that the reason the mounts took forever to come in was because BMW sent it to another shop with the similar name. Believe it or not. I intend on believing them because my car has been in their shop for 4 months, and they aren't paid by the amount of time my car is in there but labor for each job they are working on.

So anyways, the exhaust is crooked in the picture not because of bad installation, but because the engine is crooked with the cracked engine mounts.

They need to send the car over to BMW to get the airbag light off and with a few minor installs and the car is as good as mine again. I'll post pictures up later, since this time I brought a decent camera.

+ 1

Get that rear bumper sorted asap. The car is supposed to be restored to the same condition as before as best as possible.

@123D-M - Thanks! and you can't see it, but I still have the jaguar emblem dent in my license plate!

@jzhang - I want a drop soo badly, but I don't have that kind of money to get eibach/koni fsd yet + after a fender roll, I still rub in the rear.

@Simon - Dude, the eyelids are crazy aggressive!!! My friend's dad said it made the car look like a girl! hahha

@larryn - no depression here!!!
