Fender bender !!!!

The inevitable happened today when my gf ran up the backside of a ford fiesta with a tow ball (weird as I would have thought it would be lucky to pull a shopping cart!) She swears the car wouldnt stop in time but more to do with her late breaking than anything else I would think.

Anyway metal beat plastic again and there is a small ding in the front and a couple of scraps.

My question..... they are getting me a new part so is it worth getting the old one from them and selling? Do you think anyone would be interested in it... it is a 4 month old front bumper from M sport kit.

I think so. If it is just a small ding, someone out there might be interested to buy it, have the ding filled and bumper repainted. I never get surprised to see what gets listed and sold on Ebay.

Absolutely Rodders! sell it and get some money for it. If it happened to me, I would be doing the same, well actually, ill probably get my plastic welder out and make me a custom bumper!!

Repairers can repair plastic bits despite what they will tell you. I have seen it done…. and done well.

Cheers.
