I parked my 325i in a parking lot & the front buper had gone over a concrete block in the front of the parking space....well I guess that's pretty common due to the low clearance. However this time there was an Iron rod slightly protruding from the top of the concrete block. As a result on Reversing the car the iron rod, pulled out the right side of hte front bumper & the impact also tore the right front wheel liner. Called the dealers; it could cost me $1000+. A very lame way to lose money.
Is it okay to leave it as-is? I am not concerenced about the look, but I am concerence if leaving it as-is would affect any other parts of the car that would cost me even more in future.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Leaving it as-is shouldnt be a problem. obviously just make sure that nothing is going to fall off of the car and also make sure that there are no bare wires hanging which could short together.
