well it aint gonna t-cut but any half decent bodyshop will be able to make it as new without replacing the bumper.

you will need new fog ring though.

yes and ouch, if you can get a new bumper in the right colour you will find that will be cheaper than getting it repaired. a friend had a quote for £120 for repairing a hole and scratches similar to that but got a second hand immaculate bumper for £20.

he went for the £20.

Best off searching for a bumper same shade as your one, IMO - probably work out cheaper and less hassle in long run...

Breakeryard.com and 24/7spares.co.uk would be good 'uns to start with :thumbup

At least it's only the plastic bumper, and not any other metal panels, or anything underneath the bumper - though it's the nice soft washer bottle behind that corner

Could be far worse at least :thumbup

a bodyshop should be able to fix that easily. I think I have a silver fog light ring which still has the clips intact so would only need a quick spray

Doesn't look too bad. Easily fixed.

But, as said above, try get a replacement bumper in the same colour first. Probably be cheaper than the repair/respray costs.

thats not a bad price at all IMO

Just ask him to apoxy resin a patch behind the bumper where the crack is, it'll help stop flex and the crack re-appearing

Unlucky mate, how did you do it? Like said above it doesnt look to bad. Is the bottom of the headlight cracked too? Might cause some condensation if it is.

I thought they kinda 'welded' the plastic somehow, or are they GRP on Coupes?

nah just ABS plastic.

Taking another look at that, id say you were very lucky imo

Mounts look undamaged (bumper sitting right) no major holes/missing chunks/massive dents

considering you hit a brick wall, you hit it well!

if you want to make it a bit easier for now that white stuffing might just rub off with your hand and a bit of pressure, obviously won't sort it but will make it less unbearable til you do get it sorted.
