Don't text and drive

[IMG][/IMG] this happened yesterday. I had to stop suddenly and the driver behind wasn't paying attention. Witnesses say she may have been looking at her phone. Of course she was driving a POS with no insurance and then ran off when I called the state patrol.

Any recommendations for a BMW certified body shop in the Seattle area?

Painful but I am glad you are OK.

In these situations and to be broader in today's world, dash cams - front and rear - are essential.

That should be good enough to track her down. She may not have insurance, but fleeing the scene is enough of a bad thing. The cops will track her down.

Sorry about the damage but glad you are ok!

Glad you're ok and she's going to be getting a hit and run if you got the plate.

Ouch! Glad you're okay OP, that's what's important. I used to live in Seattle, check out Michael's Collision Center in Burien. I don't know if they're BMW certified but they helped me out tremendously when my Subaru got sideswiped.

I checked out Burien Auto Rebuild. I decided to go with a BMW certified place that my BMW center recommended. Unfortunately it'll be about 6 weeks before it's 100% again

Sorry to see your car damaged but the most important thing is that you are physically ok. It'll be like new in no time.

As for the POS, they'll get what's coming.

Situations like these remind me that I need to go buy a quality dual-channel dash camera.

If you're willing to go on a short drive I would highly recommend Queen City auto rebuild in Redmond. Estimates can be a bit pricey but their quality of work is amazing. Edit: They aren't bmw certified however they do use all the OEM paint and such, and they are certified by Aston, Porsche and Audi, so you're in good hands.
