Rear bumper respray.

Hi,

A heavy gate at work has been blown open and hit the rear bumper of the ///M. It now has a small "hole" about 20mm long by 4mm high. The bumper is plastic so can it be filled and sprayed? Anybody know roughly howm much a bumper respray would cost? The colour is Estoril Blue.


Regards,

I have the same one fitted. I bought it to replace the standard mesh. Overall all it is a good little deflector. It can flex back/forwards a little a speed. The main benefit to the clear deflector is the visibility. I think the mesh is slightly better at bocking wind though, imho.
