My sister got into a accident a couple of days ago, it was minor so my sister was planning to pay for the repairs without going through the insurance company. Today the lady called her with the estimate and was told that she needed a new bumper and would cots £350+ Vat :eek:

Take a look and see if that is unrepairable

My sister's just got off the phone with her insurance company and they're sending someone to look at the damage, I personally think a cloth and a couple of hours of polishing would do the job ;)

A cousin had similar damage to his Fiesta in warranty. It was repaired at the dealership and cost £280 for the bumper to be removed, paint stripped and resprayed :).

If somebody had done that damage to my car I'm afraid, as unfair as some might think, I would give the person two choices:

1. I'll get a quote for a brand new bumper, to be colour matched and fitted. Either you pay that or
2. We get insurance involved

Mainly because I know if insurance is involved it will be a new bumper.

Ohhh sorry. Just re-read the OP.

Yeah, if she has hit someone else, it'll likely be a new bumper and respray. £350 + vat sounds about right!

thanks for the replies, the insurance company is handling it now. my sister has Protected NCD so they won't take 2 years off but I guess the premium would go up a bit next year.
