I have had an accident with my bumper and have yet to get it replaced. Funny actually....it was the day I brought her home from the dealer and after a 15+ hour drive with no incidents, as my excited ass hopped into the car to back her out of the driveway (well parking lot) I somehow managed to back into my mothers SUV!!! I know Im an idiot, and even with parking sensors I still managed to hit her car (when I usually back out of my parking space, Im not used to a car being parked behind my turning radius...which my moms was...and I guess I was so excited to finally get her out and drive her for the first time my dumb ass neglected to see her car there.
Anyways, I had a deep surface abrasion on the paint. It didnt dent the bumper, but the paint is pretty badly scraped on the bottom right corner of the bumper. Its not really that noticable, unless the car is freshly washed, thats why Im not really in a hurry to fix it.
The dealer/bodyshop quoted me on about $1000 for a new bumper/paintjob. I do have parking sensors as well.
What I want to do when I have them replace my bumper, is get a base model bumper and have them fit the parking sensors in it instead of replacing it with the "C" bumper. Im not a big fan of the chrome strip on the back of my bumper, and I plan to get new exhaust tips which wouldnt look right in the circular cut-outs we have.
...like I said Im in no rush to have this done, I guess Im just going to wait for a week when Im outta of town to get it fixed so I dont have to part with my car for that long.
Hope this helps you get an idea of the price your looking at (around the $1000 range, it varies) and Im sorry to hear about your mishap, I know how ya feel, lol.
-You might also want to check around with a bunch of local body shops and whatnot instead of taking it to the dealer to try and find a better price.
-Or perhaps see if you can order the full rear bumper from perhaps Wycoff or another place online cheaper than what the dealer would charge you and have a body shop install/paint it for ya. Might save a couple bucks that way as well.
