I dinged my passenger side front bumper (adjacent to tire) a little bit. Repair costs?

    I was driving a bit too aggressively in a large outdoor mall parking lot. I made a quick right turn and hit the curve a bit. Nothing would be noticed unless you spend a good 10 seconds examining the front fender/bumper.

    A bit of a scratch near the base of the bumper directly in front of the tire.

    Any ideas on how much it should cost to paint/repair?

    Something that unnoticeable should be less than $100. Canadian

    Picture? (it's possible now, btw, upload problem has been fixed)

    Do you maybe mean a "curb"? How low was this hit?

    I scraped the underside of the front bumper, passenger side, on a high curb. Could hardly see it, but you could feel it. Excellent, Toyota recommended, body shop repair cost me just over $800.00 US. Included removal of the bumper, paint repair and recalibration of sensors.
