I can't remember if the bumper is bolted on or welded. Either way I would take it to a reputable shop and see what they advise, and more importantly costs. I would imagine since you were rear ended the other driver would be at fault. What did your insurance company say? The other driver's insurance should foot the bill to repair all damage.

Thanks haven't heard from either insurance companies yet it just happened a few hours ago. The guy who rear ended me said I was at fault for not turning on my brake lights while turning. I did brake and signal as well this is my first car wreck so sorry for lack of inexperience haha.

No problem. Post back to let us know how it goes. Bum luck getting hit though. My last Mustang got side swiped, but it was by family so I didn't go through insurance and ate the cost of repairs. A few months ago my 2014 Ninja got run over by a commercial van while I was at work. Progressive took good care of me though. It sucks when some wrecks your stuff, I know you pain bud.
