I bought mine back accident damaged from my insurer, when I heard they were going to sell it for (IIRC) 2300. It cost me about 2K to have it repaired to make it mechanically 100% (I told them not to worry about aesthetics), in an official BMW dealership. If I had done it myself, I could have done it for about 200 less. 700-900 less if I had been patient and bought the requisite parts from breakers yards, ebay, etc. I've ridden mine back to back with uncrashed bikes several times, there's no difference I can detect.

Depends massively on the nature of the damage sustained in the crash, mind...
