e39 Car Accident!!!

Today was just now a good day for me, got my car out of the Indy Shop by paying $500 for a new ignition switch lock cylinder and assembly and on the same day after leaving work I get into a car accident!!SUCKS!! nothing major though. just the driver side of my front M5 bumper is torn off and the car is not drivable because of damage to the tire rods a few scratches on the rear other the that my car is in tip top shape. BEST NEWS is I 'm not at fault. the guy who hit me did not yield the right away. so his insurance company is paying for the damages. Since this is my first car accident do you guys know if the insurance will cover the damages for the aftermarket front bumper or no. because I do not want to have an OEM front bumper thrown back on my car. with all the hardwork I put into getting the upgrades to my car, I wouldnt want to buy another m5 bumper. and also if there are other problems with the car that was not caused by an accident will my insurance cover it too??
