Rear bumper replacement

My rear bumper is damaged dented in about 4 inches in on the very right corner. I live in southern California, and was wondering where I should look for to buy a new replacement rear bumper at a good reasonable price. I'm not looking to get anything out of the ordinary like a body kit, just want my boxster to look the way I got it. I have a 1999 model boxster. If anyone who lives in the area knows a good place give me a PM or post on this thread. Any information regarding cost for a replacement would be nice too thank you.

You can see if a dent repair specialist can fix it. Should cost a heck of a lot less than buying a new bumper.

Another option would be salvage/junk yards. You can find perfectly good parts for a fraction of the cost of a new bumper.

I had this fixed by a mobile paintless dent repair guy. I think it was about $250. Not perfect, but can't tell from 5' unless you really lookl close.

Don't ask me how.

All fixed.

I agree on the dent specialists. I believe they use heat in working the dent back into shape. LA Dismantlers may have a bumper and also ebay.

My shop is able to repair damage to bumper's like the one shown in the picture. We have been in the bumper repair business for over 50 years. A job like this would cost about $200. Feel free to visit our website at Chrome 1. We are located in the socal area.
