Dear all,

I just joined this great forum since I bought a 525i 90 two months ago. I have just started drinving, so on Halloween night that I was leaving my spot in a very tiny dark foggy parking lot, I BACKED UP into a mini bulldozer and damaged the RIGHT CORNER. The metal above the bumper is dented badly (5 inch long, 1 inch deep) and it's color is gone too. Please see attachment.

I just wanted to get your opinion for how much $$$ it would be fair to get it fixed based on any specific solutions, if there are any (e.g. replacing with metal sheet, etc ...)

I would most greatly appreciate any reponse, Thanks.

5iveboy,

I don't know the exact price, but I don't think it should be that expensive since a lot of that can be pushed out from the trunk and then filled in with that ... help me find the word on what it's called
