correct, unless you buy a 335i mtech rear bumper it should come with a diffuser, if not then you will need to buy both.

I had a very similar accident in the exact spot and even though it was in a parking lot, the other party's car tore 3 tabs. Judging by your last picture, you might be better off with a new rear bumper since there might be tab(s) torn as well. Ultimately, if you pay for insurance, use it.

335 or not, if you buy a new bumper from a vendor it'll come with a diffuser unless for some odd reason it's stated otherwise.

Neither should young irresponsible asshats (not you WhyCry), nor drunks or potheads.
I know "old people" that can driver better than many of us, and have better driving records too.
I'm 37, so don't look at me lol

If you take this to an auto body shop, make sure you ask them if they report to CarFax. Many places are now.

You are entitled to your opinion, but painting all drivers of a certain aspect with one brush is just naive. My father is a truck driver, and so are most of his friends, many of whom have driven for the past 15-20 years, millions of miles across North America, accident free. Sure you get bad truck drivers, just like you get bad BMW drivers, but to say all of them shouldn't be allowed to drive is just dumb. Iv been with him on plenty of trips, and you should see how bad the other drivers on the road are, pulling onto the highway going 20mph because they are scared, cutting off an 18 wheeler that ways about 80 000lbs gross, then gunning it with their v6 and going 100 mph.

Everywhere you look youll find bad drivers, it isin't specific to certain group, race, or sex.

That being said.. ill give you old people.. probability of an old person being a dangerous driver is exponentially higher.

Hope you get the problem fixed soon OP, let us know how much the repair costs

Really, so you'd rather rear-end someone yourself? At least let the tailgater take the fall.

Very true. And it's definitely not reported because the dealer will just patch it up.

I disagree. Trucks are much more careful because they have to be. They don't have the quick reflexes and will not tailgate or change lanes without looking/signaling. They know they can't stop on a dime. Now, I'm not saying there aren't a few bad apples, but they are rare.

I'll try to find out for you on the $

For the Carfax, make some friends at a few shops and don't be afraid to ask. Usually, its just a matter of money. If it comes from you, you might be able to keep it off the report. If its through insurance, just a about no chance (short a paperwork error)

Until you get behind an 18 wheeler, and then you notice how hard it is to do your job with a fully loaded trailer while a stupid mini or smart car cuts in front of you. Or you're trying to switch lanes and a car hovers in your blindspot....

Couldn't agree more. People treat 18-wheelers like crap on the road. I tend to treat them with caution since they can easily turn my car into mush.

I don't want to use my insurance for two reasons, 1) it'll raise my rates 2) it'll show up on the car fax that its been in an accident

Replacing these parts yourself is not hard at all. There are many write ups about R&R the rear bumper. The same goes for the position sensor. I would also wait to see what the compression styrofoam looks like before doing anything. Actually the foam sold at Home Depot or Lowe's can be used to fill in any compressed styrofoam.
All in all the best plan is to take the old bumper into the paint shop with the new bumper and have them match the paint and also paint your position sensor at the same time. As long as you can drive something else for a few days you should be good to go.

If you buy a new bumper, it'll come with the diffuser you need. I was referring to buying a used M-Tech bumper since you asked about the exhaust cutouts. You would be able to swap the diffuser for the correct one.

For someone who has a lot of strong opinions on other drivers being excluded from the road why exactly should you be allowed on the road?
