cost is not the major factor but having a second set of lights mounted low in bumper helps in highway driving, especially in the fog. should i claim insurance and go for standard fitting or can i get a aftermarket one through insurance claim?

I doubt if insurance will cover an aftermarket bumped....if you plan to modify your car anyways nows probably a good time to get a custom bumper....

my bumper got itself corrected thanks to the sun and the bumper itself. now only a repaint and fog lamp replacement is required.

bumper was not broken but had a huge dent in it. physically when i9 trid to push it out it was not coming and the paint in area where i was pushing was crackinh, so left it as it is for change. after the car was parked in sun for two days i noticed the whole thing has gone missing, only the marks of my attempt to correct the dent remains. there is an other thread about similar thing happening to fellow bhpn.
