My question was:
2005 BMW X5 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 32000 miles
Is there any written repair documentation, spec, etc. To show that, after a rear-end collision, as a safe repair practice, the rear impact absorbers need to be replaced by default, as once compromised, they cannot warranty anymore the safery of the body and passengers in a subsequent rear-end collision?
The response was also a question:

Yes. Are you asking for me to give you the BMW statement or just a general rule of thumb?
Thanks for the response, yes, I'd appreciate:
- The general "rule of thumb"
- The specific BMW position
- A documentation/procedure/spec to substantiate the above, ideally issued by BMW
Thanks for your reply,
