X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
The BMW X6 luxury crossover went on sale in April 2008 as a 2009 model year. BMW referes to the X6 as a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) as it combines the attributes of an SUV (high ground clearance, xDrive and all-weather ability) with the stance, styling and roof line shape of a coupe. The E71 X6 was built off the E70 X5 (2007 - 2013) platform at BMW's Spartanburg, SC plant. Total worldwide sales were just over 235,000, sold mostly to the BRIC countries. US total sales was 34,082 vehicles.

Scraped an X6.....Is This Repair Estimate Reasonable?

Hey everyone, so last week I scraped a X6 with my Tacoma while pulling in to a parking spot I myself don't even know how I managed to hit a parked car but I deserve a major face palm. Today the other party went to a collision center and received a quote of $1500 just to repaint the rear bumper....Do you guys think this estimate is legit and reasonable? I'm a college student and I don't want to be taken advantage of and originally I didn't want to run this accident by my insurance company but now it seems like I have to. I'll attach photos of the damage and the estimate. I would love your guys' opinions and advice on what to do! Thanks!

A deer ran into my X5 right front corner, and the only visible damage was the reflector-camera insert was visibly depressed in to the body. $4000.
Scepticism and Animal Faith (1923)
Scepticism is the chastity of the intellect, and it is shameful to surrender it too soon or to the first comer: there is nobility in preserving it coolly and proudly through long youth, until at last, in the ripeness of instinct and discretion, it can be safely exchanged for fidelity and happiness.
(The Works of George Santayana p. 65)

Eschew eristical argumentation. I am responsible for what I write, not for your understanding of it.
