    I would presume you contact BMW or the insurers. What does it say on the paperwork?

    Easy peasy lemon squeezey. Just ring up and they send you a PDF doc to fill in.Upload a few pics to a website and wait . Apparently they send a man in a van to do the fix

    How much do they charge out of interest ?

    And are you able to see the repair afterwards ?

    I know i'm such a tit. Why cant they invent kerbs made of rubber for the likes of us kerb crawlers!!!!
    Car gone in tonight for refurb and when i got there they have a new finish which has a lustre look and brighter than
    the silver they are so when i get it back i shall take a couple of pics. :snaphappy:
