LA Times: Throwaway Cars

BMW mandates special crash repair shop training for its high tech body construction (aluminum, glue and rivets) but some insurance companies
rather total these cars than fix them. Seems to me that M-B's CL class has a similar repair requirement. Wonder what Jaguar does for its XJ sedans which are also aluminum bodied.
So throwaway cars - are starting from the top of the market - junk the expensive cars and fix the cheap ones!
