    Looks a bit deep to me, although I'm no expert on these things. I'd say it would need filling and spraying as I'd imagine the paint has probably cracked.

    I guessing that should pop out as its only plastic, but it may return unlevel. Yess the paint will likely have stress cracks.

    I had a dent exact same place but a bit bigger, reversed into a damn Fiat Cinquecento! broke its tail light but left a huge dent in my bumper. Took it to my local bodyshop who said as it wasn't dual layered they could remould it (I think they just warm it up and push it out, could be wrong though), cost me 200 for the job inc the respray. The dent was a fair bit bigger, going around the corner of the bumper as well however I guess the same principle would apply.

    Hmm must just be expensive my way, got 3 diff quotes couldnt find anything cheaper, that or they just see me comming! Thought a new bumper would be around 300 inc spraying it, also wasnt sure how easy it would be to get hold of as the car has a factory fitted bodykit. Scraped the door once along the centre moulding and that was 150 cheapest! My local specialist charges labour at around 50/hour everywhere I go I get robbed I think it would be cheaper to drive to the midlands and get my work done there, my sis lives that way think any future work will require a planned visit to hers! Anyone know of a cheap good garage around wolverhampton?!
