Rear bumper dent woes :(

So the law of ***. You're about to sell the MCS you've been lovingly tending to for the last 5 years, and somebody backs into it in your own car park.

I've already tried Dent Devils and they said they can't help. Have I got any options other than going to BMW direct? And has anyone else had this done and know how much it will cost to fix?

Change the bumper, I had mine changed and turned out excellent. Grab one from ebay Genuine brand new then spray it accordingly...

This seller is excellent for MINI parts and the after sales is excellent : munich_parts

As for the body dent, try a panel beater

I would personally say get a new bumper....i had a woman reverse into my car a while ago and when i got quoted by BMW for a new bumper they wanted over 600! Instead i contacted derek woodman for 2 prices...an orignal cooper s bumper and a aero bumper...suprisingly the aero bumper is a lot cheaper to buy! BMW wanted 500 for the bumper but iagain i thought that was to much to lump on to the lady who hit the back of me seeing as she was my girlfriends family friend! I brought the bumper from BMW for 200 in primer with a fixing kit and then found a local spray shop and got it sprayed and fitted for 140. Definitly worht going through an idenpendant place as BMW are rip offs!
