    Personally i would just use very strong superglue (£1) depends if its plastic or going over paint as some may discolour or even burn the paint. Thier's probably something on the market that does exactly the same job but says its for cars and costs about a tenner.

    depends what the bumpers made of as to how you repair it, that said most if not all bmw bumpers can be melted back together with a soldering iron for a diy repair. take the bumper off and do this from behind. this will be the cheapest and strongest method. moving on from this, to get it back to original finish, you will need to do this on both sides of the crack and then use a suitable plastic filler to tidy it up and then of course get it painted. depends on your budget really.. we use a plastic welder which is a glorified heat gun and different plastic rods for different types of plastic..

    the profesional way to do it fiar enough, suppose it all depends on a few things id superglue me M reg standard bumper, but would go this way on a 05 reg M sport bumper.

    thanks, but its a very very small crack...you dont notice it from a distance. i guess the best way is to fill it with a suitable plastic filler then give it a touch up...yes or no??
