    If you had to make a guess, how much would you say this damage would cost to fix?

    I know it depends on where you go, etc. but what's a reasonable range?

    You can only really take it for an estimate because as you say it depends where you take it. You might get it done for £50 by someone under a railway arch or £500 from a main dealer.

    scuffed bumper, will need some filling then full bumper respray, probably looking at around the £150 mark from a good private garage (and there are some, i had some work done on mine and dare i say they did a better job than vauxhall when someone went into the back of me.) If you take it to maindealer then youll obviously be looking at a lot more.

    If you do go private get some reviews and ask to see other repairs they have done because although there are some good ones theres always the cowboys out there aswell.

    also look to get some prices from the smart paint repairers that are around now.
