Best way to fix bumper

So on top of my windshield being written on in sharpie today my sister backed up into my front bumper scratching some of the paint but also dented it pretty well. She's gonna pay to fix it but what do you think the best route would be? Buy a new front bumper or take it too a shop and get it painted and the dent fixed. Quite the day!

Don't turn it into insurance or your value will go way down!

Is the fender creased as well? If so that's more like a $1,600 repair than $600.

If the bumper is not cracked,what they will do is take a heat gun to the bumper and work the dent out.

They should also be able to apply PDR to the fender, or at least try it prior to replacing it. My guess is the bumper should be able to be air brushed.

Could you pop these out yourself with a heat gun?

Wow! Thanks for that awesome video link. I bought mine with some nicks and dings and I don't want to pay an autobody shop for what I can do with a heat gun.

Hopefully your sister has a grand chillin', $300 for a repaint of the bumper and the rest will go towards fixing and repainting that fender.

No problem. It's pretty simple from what I hear.

I still have no idea. I was parked outside my mothers apartment overnight in line with a ton of other cars facing the right direction. Sadly their aren't any cameras on that side of the complex so I have no idea who did it. It took me awhile to get all of it off

Finally, someone who agrees that chipped paint and creases in sheetmetal can't be fixed with a heat gun and PDR LOL.
I say a lot more than a grand too, but all my experience with getting auto body repairs done has been on insurance claims so they were probably higher.

I only settle for the best. Same here, got my whole last 'stang repainted but a nice chunk was paid off by my insurance.
