about $700-$1000 for the bumper.

1. Take off bumper
2. mold
3. sand down
4. respray
5. some OEM parts like sensors may need replaced
6. reinstall

I'm not sure about the fender, but it would be a similar process. If they want to take it off, then basically, also $700-$1000 for the fender.

Sorry about your luck man, but take it to the right shop, who can match the paint perfectly, you do not want a shitty paint job. Also, it all depends on how much your dealer will deduct from you for this. It might be worth paying the insurance deductible to get this fixed. I mean, seriously no effort at all right? Drop off at the shop of choice, then pick up in a week.


Did the wheel damage occur in the same accident?

I'm not sure how much he would charge for the straight turn in...you should ask him for a quote, but you got a lot going on there with the scuffed wheels too. But since you have quite a sales history there, see what you can do. Good luck. Personally, I would just get it fixed with the deductible.

Sorry to hear about your car. My car was hit recently too. Looked similar but on the back bumper. Take it to a reputable shop. Ask them if it is just paint transfer and if it can be compounded/wet sanded out. Mine came right out, looks like it never happened. They didn't even charge me for it, just tipped the guy who did the work.

Its really hard for someone to judge the damage from pictures on the internet. If not just paint transfer, then you may be looking around $1k (especially in NYC) for sanding, painting, and blending (since its so close to other unaffected panels).
