    Unlucky bloblob!

    Without pictures I don't think the guys can assess the damage to be honest.

    Why not upload some?

    I agree with Phil, heat it and fill. But you do need to post pics.

    Post the pics to a site like photobucket then insert the link into your post.

    you dont by chance have a bumper compatable with the s3 rear vallance facelift or pre do you?, i could get mine repaired but the hours to do so pretty much justify a bumper
