    Mrs SamDude had a fight with a wall once, she broke a tooth.

    I have a bottom half of an S Line Sportback 06 year rear bumper if you need one, perfect condition in Misano Red with black insert, swopped for a towbar version! Reasonable offer accepted.

    If the damage isn't too bad I'd give one of the companies like ChipsAway a call. They don't just do stone chips. Cosmetic repair to a bumper is probably within their capabilities.

    mine was done at a normal bodyshop but ive used them before so knew it would be ok. be carefull of chipsaway type repairs some can look awful after a while. not saying they all do but see what legnth of warranty they give!

    one benefit of a good chipsaway type company is that they will repair it on the car and at a place that suits you as they are mobile.
