another good option is to fix it then sell it salvage (pretty sure u can get 48k for it) then buy used/new.

from my personal experience of fixing suspension on MX, u need to look underneath the car, if the subframe is damaged then pretty sure 20k is not gonna be enough unless u do a lot of work yourself. My car had suspension damage n almost no body damage (fender only) n i spent close to 10k just on parts...

If not, they can always retrofit CCS charging and stick it to Tesla while keeping this car from going to the crusher and contributing toward climate change and waste.
On top of the risk that supercharging won't be able to be enabled, there's also no guarantee that the car will ever be the same. I think it's better to just get a new one.
