Well, as I was backing out of a old cement driveway last night (at my inlaws house) one of the broken pieces at the end was pushed up by my front tire and pulled the front bumper almost completely off. My question is would I just need to replace the plastic piece that runs along the top (the bolts broke thru the plastic) or is there more damage than i can see (was the actual bumper attached somewhere). Im going to get estimates but I was hoping someone here could give me an idea what to expect first (Its an 850R bumper) Thanks in advance

Update - the bumper needs to be replaced (top and bottom pieces) as all of the bolt holes are ruined. One of the foglights is broken as well. The estimates have been around $1K - looks like home insurance will cover it but I wanted to ask if that sounds reasonable. The bumper is like $600 and the fog light is like $250 (good lord) Of course the bumper then needs to be painted. It just seems like such a waste of a good bumper (you would think there is another way to do it as the bumper is cosmetically perfect. Oh well.... btw my name is alex

Alex,<BR>if you can't salvage it, i'm sure there are some car savvy people who would love to buy the bumper from you and turn their t5 to an R, that way you actually come away ahead!!!!<P>

Hi Guys,<P>I have replaced the bottom section myself from the standard to the R type. The cost was £125 pound about 175 dollars. Next i had it sprayed when having my front bonnet/hood, rear bumper and door mirror surrounds and that cost my £800 pound about $1120.<P>Unfortunately for me some nice delivery truck reserved into my drivers side wrecking my wheel arch and the top grey piece on the pumber. I decided to have a complete respray while in the shop.<P>The insurance paid for some of the work but the grey part of the bumber isat least twice the price if not more. FYI the total cost of the job £2500 pound about $3500.<P>Mark.<P>
