2011 RS Front Bumper damage feedback

My daughter scraped the right front corner of her bumper on a pole in her parking garage the other day. Her black RS is her pride and joy (mine too). She is just sick about it. I am attaching pics (that I took in the dark unfortunately) of the damage. If you can tell from the pics, I would appreciate any comments or feedback. Can the bumpers be repaired or do they just replace them? Any thoughts on what this might cost? Thanks for the help.

PS:no sheet metal damage at all. It's all on the bumper, thanks

Probably looking at a new bumper there. I'd estimate around $800-1000.

ouch :( i'm thinking of getting a new front bumper, not cause i hit something, but because of how many little chips are in the front bumper. truely the worst durability paint i've ever seen, and my niece finger paints.... looks like i should get a repaint estimate vs a new bumper

You definitely need a new front bumper cover now.

it's fixable! Bondo and some spot putty sanding and painting will do the trick! hehe
