Had a bit of a mishap this evenin where i reversed into a metal bollard and put a crease in the bumper and a dent in the bootlid.

I know i can get the dent pulled and prob need a respray but can a crease in plastic be cured or is it a new bumper job?

Good man, at least then we can all see how bad it is, with some denta depending in the crease a hairdryer would help pop it back out :)
