Any one know how much the FiST bumper cover is? Does is come painted?

I had an unfortunate incident with a fox that has cracked the cover near the intercooler grill.

My deductible is high enough that I will likely be paying out of pocket.:(

Wonder what autocross cones will do?

The GTI hit a bunch of them and had no problems but a buddy's Ha YUN Dai Genesis broke all to hell...

I don't know. I suppose hitting anything at 50 MPH, even a fox, is bound to do something. Freaking annoyed about the whole thing.
My wife and I have three vehicles in the household, now all three are wearing scars from animals. I'm thinking I should move closer to the city.

I got a couple estimates from local shops and the bumper cover is crazy expensive. Estimates for fixing with replacing the bumper cover ranged from $950-$1100 with the bumper being $573.52-$702.12 of the cost. The second shop gave me an estimate where he repaired the bumper instead of replacing it by glueing/repainting the bumper and it came out to $550, so I think I am going to go with that for now. You will be able to tell the bumper has been repaired from the back, but I never look on the backside of my bumper :D

Any reason I shouldn't just have it repaired? All of the original plastic is there, so repairing it should be fairly easy.

I attached a pic for reference

As new as the car is get new parts and fresh paint to match...

But that's just me if you are happy with the fix and save $$ all the better :)
