No, I don't ... I'm sure a body shop will advice you best.

In my case it was a medium rear ended at a traffic light. At first the damage appeared to be around $1000- on e in the shop it was established the bumper had a crack and on e removed from the car the bracket holding the bumper was cracked and required to be replaced as well. All in all the end oat was just over $3000- with labour, paint and 13% tax.

Your case might be just cosmetic, perhaps wait till the next guy hits you (heaven forbid) from the back. :d
