Default V60 Rebel Blue Front Bumper

Hi all, this is my first post;
recently a small scuffle with a fence during a night of heavy fog meant I am on the lookout for a new front bumper, can anyone tell me how much I can expect to pay? Are there any suppliers apart from main dealers that might save some cash? are they as easy to fit myself (cost cutting) as I have read elsewhere?
Thank you

Would you not be better having a bodyshop repair and repaint what you have?

The plastic has bent and split in places, i'd have thought they'd simply replace as well but just trying to save a bit of cash if poss.

Paint shop I use has some fancy gear that allows them to make all sorts of repairs on plastic bumpers, heated staples, special fillers etc. Might be worth speaking to some bodyshops in your area

Posted recently about a similar subject. Damage requiring a replacement bumper. Sourced a colour coded bumper on eBay for 130. Will fit myself...
