Angry Help Some One Backed Into Me

so about a month ago some one backed into my front bumper while in Boston the damage is not too visible from the front but underneath is all broke my insurance is thinking it will cost about 2500-3k? should I get a different front bumper since I have the option or stay with the BMW M Aerodynamic kit I got with the car??

Haha I have those sides but for my e46. Did you ever consider painting the indent? I did it to mine and I think it turned out sick. Have you seen me around BU area at all yet? I'm not sure if I've ever spotted your car at 88 square Allston.

Where was that photo shot? Nice spot! Me and Anton on e46fanatics did a shoot in the only decent place we could find in Boston- Museum of science:

Your car looks SICK~ but you gotta lose those girls, mang.....

For me wife would never approve of painting the indentation... LOL~ Imagine getting those overlaid with black carbon fiber. It would be pure sex.

However, I'm gonna have the shop fill the dimples for the Hamann stickers this time though. I guess my installer forgot to tell the body shop to fill them last time. We are still debating whether to repaint the rear bumper or not. It looks yellow in certain angles but perfect in others. I guess we'll have to leave well enough alone.

The location of that shot is the Newton Pavillion (aka East Newton Campus) of Boston Medical Center. During the weekends, it's fairly quiet there so it's a good spot to take pics.
