okay, i'm too lazy to look to far, only checked out the body kits on vivid racings site. anyways, are there any bodykits that replace the rear bumper on the wagon? looks like the encounter i had left a deep enough scratch where i'll need to replace the bumper if i want it to look good again. so far from what i've seen, most kits have bumper lips, which is no good. any ideas?

Cheer-up dude. Usually fix, not replace.
Where you live? For what you describe, I'd first try high-end auto detailing places, if not, then call bodyshops.. or yellow pages plastic repair. Way cheaper than new bunper. See also:

umm, its a pretty deep scratch... it could be sanded out, but it would be a good amount of sanding... from estimates before, its something i'd talk to the insurance company for. trust me, it won't be cheap... yuck... don't even like thinking about it... i may just clean it up and use touchup paint for the scratches... still won't look too good, but will lessen the "noticeability" of the scratches...

Get more estimates, from somebody who does bumper repair. From what you describe, $100-150. The products I url'd are for plastic what bondo is to metal. You fill the scratch, sand to eveness, and spot repaint. If its really just a scratch, even a 2-part epoxy glue can be used as filler (careful to not get it anywhere else, it'll attack paint), lightly sand just the repair, cover with touchup paint. Clean area with paint thinner before you repair. Depends on if you'll accept not very noticable or you need to have it like new again.
