Damage to crush bumpers/crumple zones

Post by webb2800 » 23/10/19 7:10

Hi guys,

Unfortunately someone has hit my 2 while it was parked. No note and so far doesn't seem like they've reported it. They've left a nice dent around the drivers side side light smashing the light and denting the front bumper and the front fender right where they meet. Luckily it seems they missed the wheel so the suspension seems to be undamaged.

Could anyone give me some advice on if the crumple zones/crash protection are likely to have been damaged or can I get away with just replacing the bumper and fender? As far as I can tell there is nothing behind the fender and since the bumper wasn't hit head on I'm hoping the impact bar is ok.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
