    My 2005 blue prius (package #1) spun out in the ice storm, and went into a not so nice drainage ditch. I was able with some coaxing to get the prius back onto the road.

    As a result, the front bumper is cracked, and eventually will need replaced. Any ideas on the costs and where to get it done at?

    Thanks,
    Dennis

    A new Toyota bumper cover lists for $200 or so and painting and installing should run no more than $200 to $300. You may get lucky and find a good used one that is the right color but don't count on it.

    I just replaced mine which was also cracked. I got one on ebay for $93 plus $60 shipping. I had it painted at MAACO for $165. I installed it myself. Total cost, about $320.

    Was installing the bumper straight forward of you had to go through multiple hoops?
