Side panel damage

I drove over the curb accidentally and it damaged the plastic panel beneath the door and the mud guard came off (not fully but it's now barely hanging). Please don't ask how the accident exactly happened because I've had a pretty bad day already. My guess is that the plastic panel + mudguard needs to be replaced. I've heard some good things about european auto body. Any idea on how much this would cost ?

I'd get an evaluation & estimate from a good body shop. After sliding into a woodpile in the ice last winter, my E46 lower panel was not damaged but was partially dislodged. It turned out that the damage was behind the panel - to the tune of over $800. Hopefully, yours will be an easier fix.
