Getting that crease out (and maybe a rip?) is going to take some time and patience with a heat gun. If they don't have to replace the diffuser, I'd say you could get a GOOD shop down to $400. I'd be suspect of anything much less than that.

Devyrn17 is probably on the money about the price, I figured $700- 900

Sorry to see that OP

Mistakes happen, at least it was a low speed accident vs. hitting a pole at 40+

I like your thinking. Take it out and do a few smoky donuts, it will make you feel better!

Exactly... after the first ding, everything gets easier! I have only had my car for 3 months, and my mom's friend insisted on showing me how to polish my car (IT AIN'T THAT HARD, I KNOW HOW TO DO IT.) and before I knew it, he poured some polish on my caked-with-dirt FILTHY HOOD, and started wiping it all around: Swirls for days. Now I realized I live in the country and swirls are inevitable. (especially if you are so stupid, like him.) They can be fixed, life goes on. Same with my last iPhone I had. Walked around like it was my baby. One day, my aunt dropped it on the concrete and shattered it. Kept it like that for a couple months and used it as if it was made of steel. I got to enjoy throwing my all glass iphone and not having a care in the world if I dropped it! I got it fixed finally, and 10 days later- SHATTERED. That's when I got into my "idgaf" attitude and said to hell with it. But now I have an iPhone 5s and its my new baby. So now I try not to worry too much about the paint on my car. As long as the body is okay, and It is repairable, it'll be fine. Hope your repair goes well!

What i dont get is, so many of the cars i see with dints or slices in their bumper have parking sensors. I think us in the non sensor camaros are more careful because we are more unaware of the 'unknown' behind us. I usually turn my radio off in the suburban ltz. When we got it, that was the first car i drove with sensors and was surprised by how quiet they are. Too bad they werent like construction vehicles. BEP BEEEP BEEEEP BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!!

So true. But the thing is, we with parking sensors get so used to hearing it beep at stripes on the road
Or minor dips that we eventually start tuning it out! I know I usually don't pay attention to the beeping.
