yea so i was following my best friend back from this other kids house in my teg like an hour ago, and we both went around this 15 mph blind curve, and there was a pickup sitting in the middle of the road. i stopped quick, he stopped quicker, and i went into the back of his '01 jetta. no damage to my car, but the screws holding my liscense plate scratched up his bumper pretty bad. its like down to the metal i think. looks like im gonna have to pay for it too, cause neither of us is gonna claim it on insurance.... so i guess im wondering how much it would be to touch up or completely paint a rear bumper (those of you with body kits can help im sure)... but yea we were both pretty pissed and what sucks more is that the guy in the pickup just looks at us and takes off. M-F'er.

I got 360 dollars for my rear bumper when someone ran into it and messed it up really bad, it couldnt be repaird, the cost was to buy a whole new bumper and re-paint it

And to get a new internal bumper (the bumper BEHIND the bumper, whatever its called)

Here in toronto, my friend painted his bumper for his car and cost around $300 canadian dollars. But I'm not sure if it depends on the type of car or colour although I don't think it would make a diff. Her car was a RSX by the way.

yea so i didnt notice this last night because it was dark out, but the paint on the front of my car is all cracked now, most likely because the bumper flexed and the paint did not. its all wrinkled and cracked under the headlights and the so now it looks like im paying for painting a jetta rear bumper and a integra front bumper... how much do you think paintin the front would be?

I would assume about $200 a bumper. Could be more. They cant just paint a 1" x 2" section of the bumper they have to paint the whole thing.

How I wish I didn't know this. Cost to replace and paint a teg rear bumper (plus replace styrofoam under bumper): $800 to $900. [Paint and labor to paint bumper was something like $160-170.]

go to a place you trust and ask how much they will do it for, CASH on the table.

i know a place that do good work and they give me good deals when you pay cash.

does anyone know how much the metal bumper reinforcement would cost to replace? i was in a little bit worse of an accident and think i need a new one. the insurance should cover it, so about what would the price be from the dealer?

Just curious...why did you switch from "his" to "hers" in your post? Did your friend hit a girl in an RSX?
