Rear ended. Need a bumper

Driving to work today I was stopped at a red light. Guy texting runs into me. My bumper has a broken mounting point and is all scratched/cracked. My insurance company set me up with an appointment at a body shop. It looks like it has good reviews, but I want to make sure it's done right. Where can I go or tell them to go for a quality replacement if it's needed?

rear covers are obsolete, if it is not all torn to shreds, most are repairable..Some members here have used spares, they may or may not offer to sell..Have large $$ avail.

Post pics of the bumper that would help for the guys to assess. I just saw a rear bumper cover go for $475.00 plus $200ish in shipping on Ebay. See what the body shop thinks.

Now your car has a strike against it, i would sue for diminished value too.

Most likely it is repairable, see what the shop says and do not go with aftermarket.

How bad did he hit you? Were the tips bent or the welds cracked on the exhaust?

Hey dudes. He didn't hit me terribly, but **** man it's all scuffed and cracked now. Check out the pics, I know it's tough to see. More than likely I can get away with a repaint and epoxy the mounting tab back together.

^^^^^^^^^^ You my friend dodged a big one! Can you leave the bumper covers bending inward while their in storage? I know their vinyl and takes up a lot of space in the garage and by bending them frees up space. Am I damaging them by doing so??

Looks to be pretty minor as long as there is no damage behind the cover - keep us posted. I'm reading where many Marauder body items are unobtanium.
