    Some Baffoon reversed into it while it was parked up, should a half decent bodyshop be able to repair this?

    I would get a quote, I know of at least one guy my way who can and has repaired this sort of thing for me in the past - cheaper than a new one...

    Or try 2nd hand - cheaper still if it's the correct colour....

    With alot of fibre glass and tome and effort somewhere would be able to fix it, but like the guys have said, your best getting a new bumper. It would probably be cheaper to get a new bumper instead of paying for te labour and repair costs to be honest mate. I only know because my brother works in a bodyshop / paint shop
