Hey guys. It was snowing the other day and my mom was about to go out. Concerned for her safety, I told her to drive my 325xi since I thought the X-drive would help in the snow. Anyhoo, when she came home, she told me she accidentally bumped into the back of a Honda Accord :bulge: Fortunately, she and the Accord driver suffered no injuries. The bimmer and Accord showed no apparent signs of damage, so the SUPER-NICE Accord driver just let the incident go.
Unfortunately, the bimmer was very dirty that day so it was hard to see any damage. After I washed it today, I noticed that on the front bumper, there are 2 areas that are pinched up and 1 area that's dented.
Here are some pics. It's hard to clearly see the damage because the Monaco Blue hides it a bit, so I circled it in red.
So how should I repair this? I will be covering the repair costs myself so an affordable solution would be great. I have no intention of informing my mom as I don't want to make her feel guilty.
Does anyone know a shop that does bumper repairs? However, I'm not sure if the pinches can be easily removed because the front bumper is made of plastic (not metal)
Does anyone know a shop that sells replica bumpers? I think the cost of repair would be high, so maybe I'm better off buying a new bumper and getting it painted.
A replica E90 M-sport bumper wouldn't be too bad.
I'd appreciate any other suggestions. Thanks.
