    Default Bumper replacement after accident

    After a Bumper Bashing I will have to replace the front bumper. And prob repair/refit the radiator, Park sensors and adaptive cruise control.

    Does anyone know if one can use the insurance claim to buy an offroad steel bumper instead of the original bumper? And still complete the underlying repairs.

    If so, how does one go about organising it?

    It depends where your car is. We had customers with the same request, they paid in the difference for the replacement bumper.

    We gave the request through to the insurance as well, and they agreed as long as the customer pays in the diffrence.

    When I mangled the OEM rear bumper on my D2, my insurance paid for a Burnco because it worked out cheaper than the OEM item, so I guess it will all boil down to what it all costs and how much they are prepared to cough up for it and whether you are prepared to fill in the shortfall if there is one.
