go to the body shop. file with your insurance if its a lot more than your deductible to fix.

The other guys claimed the accident so I had to as well, do you think I would win? Looking at the damage and story? And how much should a repair cost for damage like this? Thank you.

New fender + paint. Shouldn't cost too much from a scrapyard
That's true better if I can find the same paint then I would only have to do the bumper. I was wondering tho. Will this affect my car record if the accident it claimed... "Rebuild status"?? Thanks you

thats nothing man, bumper you could get only the smudged part re-sprayed for around 50 bucks.

Get a new fender from ebay even or a scrapyard and it should not cost more than 250 to paint the fender.

You can take the fender off yourself, it isnt too hard.

There is no need to go through your insurance on this since this is so cheap to fix, plus you can still drive your car.

I have to go through insurance causse the other vehicle was damaged and he claimed it already. so i had to as well. my premium will be at 55% if i loose =( other than that thats not bad price to fix it up...i just want to know if ill have a rebuilt status. or any record of fixing this minor damage? this is so annoying!
