A Bad Weekend...

So on Friday, my car was parked outside my house on the roadside. It was left there for about 5 hours before I brought her out to get petrol. I nearly cried at the station when I noticed the hand-sized crack on the rear bumper! Devastated! I came to terms with it..

Sunday morning, ice cold.. hand brake frozen and won't release, ended up being very very late for work, and having to take my mothers car!

Today I managed to unfreeze it eventually, by letting the engine run for a while and throwing some hot water on the ground, letting the steam rise and unfreezing the handbrake (was quite proud of myself)

I'm usually a confident, safe driver in these conditions. However, I managed to skid, taking a corner, and cracked my front bumper, right at the indicator.

I'm going to need a front and rear bumper.. Where is the cheapest place to get these. Anyone any idea what I'm looking at for both, fitted, sprayed? Any tips?

I'm awaiting a reply from Autolusso.

I would first try sourcing them in the right colour from Ebay, and fixing them on yourself as it is not a big job .
