I got rear ended yesterday. Nothing major, but I have a license plate imprint now on my rear bumper. If my car was older I might let it slide but right now it's just going to irk me every time I see it. It's a 2014 HyTi.
My questions are:
- Do replacement bumpers come painted or will the body shop need to do this?
- Someone mentioned that the paint on these plastic parts have an additive which allows it to flex. If they don't have that in the paint it will crack in the winter. Is this true?
My last car got rear ended as well, but there was damage to the metal. The body shop must not have used any rust proofing because after two years I started getting rust bubbles on the replaced parts. I did take it back and they fixed it, but it all came back. Pissed me off and led to to replacing that 10 year old car with the fusion. I really don't want to see crack form in the paint two years from now...
Any other thoughts or advice welcome.
