In 2002, my months-old 330Ci was rear-ended at low speed. What I saw was a couple of small paint scrapes. What the body shop found was that the whole bumper had been bent down (slightly). In addition...

I agree that the value of your X3 is now thousands less. It is certainly possible that the accident will not be reflected in Carfax and that therefore you could sell it to an unsuspecting party years...

Planet-9 is the best site for the Boxster/Cayman in my opinion. Keep trying.

That said, I'm not sure I have seen another forum for ANY brand that provides the insight available here at bimmerfest.

In my opinion, it is more than this; there is also the issue of the driver having good visibility around the car, particularly in the dark.
