I can buy a complete use X5 for @1200, not just a headlight.

A fender and hood at the pick n pull yard is about $100.00
Bumper cover $45.00
A headlight is just $25.00

If you got lucky you could have found a X5 in the same silver as your old one, so for under $200.00 you could have got the X back on the road. What did your insurance or the shop insurance cut you for the X5. I would have bought it back and fix it myself.
