My Bodyshop guy and the third parties assessor both said this kind of bumper is not worth repairing.

Please tell me what so special about a BMW bumper that makes it "not worth repairing"?

Only if it the cost to repair it exceeds the price to buy a new one, only than should it be replaced. (And in this case, sounds like op can repair)

There is so much misconception about what a body shop can and cannot do.

If anyone wants advice on repairs, please pm me. I might actually bump my body shop thread back up... jeez..
