For those who are still following this saga, the rear shock mount
locations are separate pieces that weld into the inner fender. BMW has
them in stock, although your dealer probably won't. My cost is $15.35
after discount - I ordered a pair.
I then called my insurance agent who told me to call the claims office
who told me to call my insurance agent. After that run-around, I decided
that the claims adjuster would take one look at the seats, harnesses,
coil-overs, etc., and deny the claim anyway. I'm going to take the BMW
parts to the race shop next week and just see how much it will be to cut
and paste. If it's within $100 of my deductible, I won't even go through
the hassle of dealing with the insurance company.
BTW, P/Ns are: 41 14 8 169 027 (driver side), 41 14 8 169 028 (Passenger
side), reference #'s 16 & 17 on the "Floor Panel Trunk/Wheel Housing"
