Exclamation Whats the cost of the NHC front bumper?

Hi

today i crashed out at high speed and luckily i hit the sharp edge of the gate (missed the wall by inches!!) the front bumper definitely needs a replacement. some part behind the bumper is also bent and it pierced into the radiator. all the coolant spilled out in minutes. do you think it can be fixed or it needs replacement?

my dad was like firing on me. now I want to know the price of the new front bumper. does anyone have an idea?

Recently when an auto drove into the rear bumper of my car, Dakshin Honda quoted me Rs. 8k for replacement; i guess the front bumper will cost atleast as much.

I insisted that they try to iron out the bumps and it costed me Rs. 650 to repair (I think). Soon enough there will be another one. With so many morons behind the wheel in this city, there seemed no point in replacing the bumper esp since the paint was not affected.

mine was badly affected. so the only option is a replacement and whats even bad is that the insurance company gives only 50% money coz its plastic.

any idea about the radiator?

Is the 9K dealer price including the paint job? if yes the difference is only 1200 - so I will get it replaced at the dealer.
