    Hi all,

    Somthing has taken out my passenger side fog light along with 6 inches of front valance surrounding it! My question is whether it's cheaper to repair or replace the bumper? I'm not keen on getting an aftermarket GRP copy and can't find a reasonably priced original. I'm also not sure how easy it would be to repair as the fog surround is quite a complex design.

    Your thoughts would be appreciated.

    Changes made, thank you the reminder.

    I suppose that nobody on here knows much about panel repairs etc then, as I have had no replies!
