    Just baught a 07 style bumper, to find that there is damage on the left side where there is a small chunk missing, one of my mates has suggested plastic welding but is it a good option and what are my other options.. Its definately noticable!

    i would say either buy another one off ebay to get a good one or plastic welding is good so long as its been done properly as if its not it can become weak and brake easy

    Plastic welding = soldering iron and cable ties .do it your self .practice on an old bumper ,then fill sand and paint it .
    did you know it was damaged prior to buying it ? If not return it ?
