Default Rear ended by a cab, where to buy a painted bumper cover?

I have a 2013 wrx hatch. Already got a quote from a body shop but was wondering if I could say some money and find an already painted rear bumper cover, either new or used.

Let me know!

Subaru does not sell bumpers new and pre-painted - unpainted only.

Buy a fresh bumper from SGP and have a body shop paint it. Is there any other damage besides just the cover?

Why do you care about saving money if they cabby is at fault?

If you REALLY want to be a cheap ass about and the existing bumper cover is not cracked you may be able to repair it.

That said, why would you want to do that to a 1 year old car and a non-at fault accident.

Cabby will be at fault and their insurance will cut me a check.

Not trying to be a cheap ass, but if there was a place to get an already painted/good condition used bumper cover I'm fully capable of installing that and putting the extra $500-$750 to a set of winter wheel or new shocks for my track miata.

Best bet may be a junk yard with a front end damaged car. But most likely you just need to have shop get new one and paint it. Plus that will be the best looking option.

Make sure to try to get some $$ for diminished value of your car. Since it has had body work is is now worth less money than it was before.
