Forward Radar on Pre-AP 2014

My significant other rear-ended a car in our 2014 pre-AP MS a couple of weeks ago in (what we think was) a staged-rear end collision. She also managed to curb rash two freshly repaired 21' turbine wheels (all in less than 6 hours), but I digress.

The entire front end of the car is being replaced ($17k CAD initial estimate).

Tesla e-mailed me a list of the parts ordered, and I'm confused by this specifically:

1038224-00-B BOSCH FWD RADAR

I don't have AP on the car (it didn't exist at the time). I don't have any sort of adaptive cruise control (ACC) that I know of, either. I checked photos of my car, and the radar unit wasn't there.

Any idea why this is now going on my car and is there a possibility of me using it for ACC? I'm guessing no, but curious as to the community's thoughts.
