How much will this end up costing?

Just noticed someone hit my car. Could have been a neighborhood kid on a bike or scooter or im not sure.

I have a 250$ deductable though and i have a feeling this is a quick sand and respray job.

you can try using the scratch x or something to see if it'll buff out. If not you would still need to sand and repaint the whole bumper because one side will look brighter then the other side since the older paint has faded from the sun.

Labor rates would vary so i would get a quote but i think it would be more then $250 for a decent paint job unless you do maaco or something.

I'd expect more around $500+ for a respray.

I plan on upgrading the bumper anyways to something better. So maybe I can end up purchasing a new bumper and have that one resprayed and end up better.

If you are going to upgrade the bumper, you can always sell this one to cover some of the cost of the new one. who ever buys it will end up having to paint it anyways to match their car.

So i was appraised at 765$ with my 250 deductable i could just take the 500 from the insurance and buy a new m tech or m3 bumper and it have sprayed. Then resell the old front to cover spray costs. Does anyone know what it would cost to respray a new front bumper? They are 500 on mod bargains.

Looks like you hit a bush or something. Hard to imagine what else could have caused that.

Hard to tell but does not look to be buffable... $300-$500 for a repaint is common. If you remove/install the bumper yourself the shop might take some labor off.

I sell insurance so this will be a collision loss but it will not go against you. Each state is different though.

Try different body shops. I had my front bumper sprayed for 260.

Found a place to do it for around 250. Now I just need to find a good place to buy a bumper with PDC holes and preferably the spots to put headlight washer sprayers.

USAA is trying to tell me it will be a 1000 deductible which i guess is the collision or comphrensive deductible. However hit and run is considered a uninsured motorist thing which my deductible is 250. The adviser is trying to say i hit like a parking concrete beam or one of those concrete barriers. However i dont see how vertical scratches could come from that.

How do they even know it was an impact? I could have come over at night with a wire brush and done that, and it would fall under comprehensive as vandalism.

There's vertical scratches, scratches inside the lower cowl, and scratches that go in various directions. I really don't think you hit a fixed object. You may have hit road debris, or went through a bad car wash, or who knows what else. I don't know what could have caused the multidirectional scratches while you were parked.

If it was me I'd forget insurance and just pay for a respray. For something like this I wouldn't want my insurance company to even find out. I had an insurance company tell me one time that certain types of claims won't make your rate go up... but they could prevent it from going down (when your rates would otherwise decrease due to age, discounts, etc.).

I got rear ended last year and had to have my bumper replaced. The shop let me get an M-Sport bumper if I paid the difference ($200 well worth it). I think overall it was about $1300 between parts and paint. Keep in mind I went to a high end shop because it was on the other drivers insurances dime Also got to drive a corolla around for 2 weeks which made my car feel like a race car when I got it back lol

But two weeks ago my roommate hit my car and scuffed up the corner, looks kind of like yours. I took my car back to the shop and they buffed it with a high abrasive compound and then polished it up and you can barely see it now.

I am currently paying 265 for 2 vehicles through my current insurance. Last night i took a look at geico and for the same coverage i was looking at paying 135 a month. So that will be the route i will be going anyways. Also i want to go to the m3 front bumper so i wont be fixing this one. Maybe mtech but isnt that the same bumper that comes with the msport option?

Don't let the PDC holes deter you from getting a good deal. All the bumpers have small dimples on the inside, where the PDC sensors go. They are drilled out for cars with PDC.

If you find a bumper without PDC holes, you can drill them yourself. The holes should be 18mm (verify with calipers). You can either find an 18mm hole saw, or I use a metric step bit, like this one - https://www.amazon.com/Ginsco-Large-...n%3A3622111011

I paid $450 for my front bumper to be repainted. So I assume you'll find it in that range as I shopped around for a few quotes.

I'm not 100% positive, but I believe, if you want to keep the washers, you need to find a bumper with the washer cutouts.
