Front bumper pushed in.

So while parking my e92 in my small garage (about 6 inches of clearance total front-to-back), I nudged the back wall with the front bumper (actually the license plate) at about walking speed. I checked and didnt see any noticeable damage until later when I noticed the front bumper is "rotated" downwards.

The gap between the hood and the front is a few 1-2 mm larger than before and the you can tell the gap where the bumper meets the fender is not even (the lower portion of the gap is slightly "tighter" than the upper).

Can I pull it back into position or readjust it somehow? It's probably not that noticeable except to me. Any ideas on what I could do? Thanks in advance!

....and after you get it fixed, place a wheel stop on the floor or hang a tennis ball from the ceiling so you will know when you have gone far enough in to your garage without using the NYC technique for parking.

thats a good call. I just moved there last month and was meaning to do so but was too lazy. It's just frustrating because I can actually physically push the bumper so it looks right... it just doesnt stay in that position.
