I get the sense that the repair shop went to the extreme to nickel and dime the insurance company for damages. I wouldn't be surprised if the actual damages totaled to around $2k -- the rest becoming extra profit for them.
Ahh that could be it. In my case, it was the shop BMW uses and it was a lease and with them and State Farm paying out at first, everyone had a vested interested in a quick turnaround.
It might be more carte blanche with your case on the M3.
Well hope things work out for you. Seems you can't catch a break.
