It was a shame. Really sucked and I loved that car!
They didn't fix it .. BMW diagnostics determined major engine damage due to all the oil leaking out and would not repair it. A new engine was $40k+ (I think $46?? Can't remember exact number now for it but I have the quote somewhere still, plus labour, plus 6-8 month wait for new engine) plus $30k+ in body/repair work put it well into the 75% range. Insurance wrote me a check for full replacement value (around $125k with taxes, etc).
I still haven't replaced it with anything .. But possibly Cayenne coming soon
I'm no expert, what is she? I wish they were flying 787's on the routes I frequent, sadly they are 737's or A320's at best.

@Big Mike she's a McDonnell Douglas MD-11...stupidly overpowered GE CF-6 engines (like I had on my sweetheart 747)...nexgen glass cockpit and though she is a little older now, very advanced systems for her time. Great airplane, a bit of a tarnished safety record but I don't care I love flying it!
I recently flew a trip in it @43,000 feet just cause I could lol! Think 1968 Z28 camaro.
About 15hrs. I gotta wrap up my instructor time and then solo. I started it and stopped mid way because I couldn't handle everything at once. Now I have cleared my plate and made it a priority to complete.
