    The front of my car has sustained damage to the front bumper on one side.
    No fluid loss, no damage to radiator, airbags not deployed, no lights on dash ,no damage to headlights(fully working)
    the car is driveable.

    please see images for damage , I have posted pics of both sides of the car for comparison.

    I assume the bumper will need to be replaced and any other damage that I am not ware of repaired.
    - the car is a 2.0 diesel , S line on a 61 plate with 100200 on the clock.

    Concerned that due to the age and mileage of the vehicle will the insurance company say. “ it’s beyond economical repair “ ?

    looking for advice on this - Thanks in advance

    What did they do about the slight bonnet damage? Did they manage to straighten the edge/corner out? The reflection on photo 4? makes it look like there is a slight downward bend on the corner.

    I know it's not apples for apples but my new rear bumper came in at £1k, but that was an Audi approved.

    Upon closer inspection the front grill has been pushed in slightly and this has caused a crack in the
    front camera lense. (See camera image on MMI screen).
