Kat, check out TKO88 post here about "dropping the engine out of an X3" he is repairing an X3 with damage similar to yours. He has lots of photos so you will have an idea of all that is involved. I side with your father in this (as a father I kind of stick up for his advice) about getting it fixed and then trading it in. Yes you will take a hit for the repair but if it hasn't been "totalled" (salvage title) then it shouldn't be that bad. Next car get one that tells you you are getting too close and then starts braking! The new Mercedes do that as do the Volvos (the XC60 is nice) and some others. Great thing to have and I am sure it will show up on all the cars soon. I am glad no one was hurt and the other driver did not suffer any whiplash from the rear end crash! Keep us informed as to what you decide to do -- these are bummers but it will all work out at the end for you.
