My car was backed into, and was scraped up on the side of the rear bumper. There seems to be no structural damage or to the lights and parking sensors. I will upload a pic tomorrow but for now it has about a 6" square of light scratching of probably the finish and about an 1" or 2 of deep scratches where i can see the black of the plastic. My 'nox is silver if that helps any. I've been trying to find out how much a whole new bumper would be only because I'd rather have it back in "new" condition and I really have no reason to trust a paintjob. Any tips on getting this repaired would be amazing.

Cover will run you $500 - 600 dollars just for the part (Made for 2011 w/sensors). You have to get it painted so figure $1200 - $1500. Maybe a shop can buff and repaint the bumper.

Any 'good' body shop that most dealers have or deal with can fix that 'as good as new'..! Paints..clearcoat and blending have come a long way over the years. Doesn't look to me that it would need a new bumper at all. ;)

The only good thing I can see right now is that it just barely missed the metal panels, its only on the plastic bumper.

Looks like you wont need a bumper. I actually ordered a brand new nox back in August. It got to the dealer and they were "cleaning it up" in the shop and backing it out of the garage.. and hit someone. The bumper had a big 2 inch crack in it so they had to replace it. It looks like you won't need a new one. Good thing they missed the expensive taillights :) consider yourself lucky!

Got the invoice total -$442 mostly labor, only $77 for supplies. Good thing is, it's free :) My friend who hit it knows some people at a body shop who can do it.
