You can add front sensors but what point would that do apart from just being front sensors that are overly sensitive and chirp if a large vehicle goes by? You still wouldn't have the active park programming.

I can see some appeal in that, but the system was so goddamn annoying I kept it off most of the time.

Front sensors only add to any future costs too.

ANY accident you always go through your own insurance company.
They take care of the details.
The only caviat is if BOTH of you have the same insurance company. Then you just have to be careful they are not gyping you.
The companies settle who did what and who owes what.
usually if you are not at fault at all, the 'other' persons insurance has to pay your deductible.
If you are found a % at fault, then YOU pay that % of the deductible. (at least usually)
No fault states have other crazier rules...
If you are less then 100% at fault, you should get money for inconvenience, and rental of a car. and maybe your policy has that anyway..
If you are partially called 'at fault' your INSURANCE pays any other expenses for other drivers.. That is part of your 'liability' coverage. You NEVER have to pay out of pocket to another driver or their insurance co. IF you have liability coverage. (usually if you were driving and in the street at all, you will have a small % of 'at fault')

And DO NOT take the car to a quick claim center and get a check. Have the repair done, there may be hidden damage. And make certain they use OEM parts, not cheap parts. (bumpers are the worst junk if not OEM, trash, just useless )

Also, it the repair is in any way faulty, go to your INSURANCE company and complain, not the place that did the repair. The insurance company will get the stuff made right. No hassle for you.
Folks think they have to argue with the repair place.. NO, the insurance co will. They have a LOT of clout.

I spoke with the persons insurance the rear ended me the lady said since she hit me they would cover all expenses and have car repaired. I brought to a shop that got good reviews on yelp i checked prior to speaking with the insurance companies and turns out mecury works with this collision center as well. I will be going to my dr because i got some whip lash think i need to see the chiropractor hopefully they will cover that.

There are no 3rd gen non OEM parts out yet, so this shouldn't be a problem.

Just for an idea on cost for the repairs, i got backed into on the passenger side behind the front tire in line with the A pillar; the lady dented both the door and wheel well, broke a hinge and some door clips, and minor paint damage. $3,000 damage not including the rental.
