    It looks as though I got a little love tap from a neighbor in the shape of a license plate screw. It has dented but has not pierced the rear bumper cover. Any thoughts on how much this will cost to fix and/or whether it will require replacement of the entire rear cover? I have someone taking over my lease and I am anticipating he will want it fixed, even though Toyota might not charge for it at turn-in.

    That $300 would be about what a bodyshop would charge too, just repairing existing bumper. Maybe simpler?

    I've really got to muzzle myself, regarding zero-mile-per-hour "bumpers", tacked-on front license plates, and so on. :censored:
