hmm...take it up to nissan to get an estimate....prolly a few hundred for the bumper...then another few hundred(or more) for painting/installation....b/c my friend had to get a bumper replaced on his ford focus due to a accident...i know his is a ford...but it is as close to an example of the cost i have...hope you get it fixed...!

you may get an aftermarket bumper (body kit) cheaper then a stock bumper, you may want to check into that as well. The dealership is gonna be pretty high so it may work out better.

Also they may be able to fix the bumper, but it will probalby be cheaper to just replace it. But like I said, you may want to look for an aftermarket bumper and you'll probably save a bit because of that.

.....not really sure what that means.....could you explain please...?
If I did get a aftermarket bumper, wouldnt I have to the the whole thing because it would look weird if i just have the front bumper instead of the whole thing. or would it not..? and considering my car is 05 i dont think any aftermarket bodykits are out....

they'd rather just replace the parts, easier cheaper on them.

it also takes them out of the loop if something goes wrong. as in, if they mess up the paint, and a half-year later it startes bubbling or flaking, they have to replace it for free. and thats money out of their pocket.

I went to the dealer and they said $800 for the bumper being replaced. I think that's outragous. I'm thinking of getting a aftermarket bodykit. How much do you think it would cost for a R33 or R34 front bodykit...? Jason :cheers:

why would you go to the dealer? go to a body shop, i can almost garantee that they can pop out the dent and repaint if they HAVE TO for under 300 bucks.....and thats better than any cheapo bodykit.

stock>bodykit 90% of the time :)

Jason. That is just insane. There is no way its $800. That's a little too much don't you think? I would search around for a used front bumper but you have an 05 right? It is very rare to find people with spare bumpers.

Yeah, when they told me that...my mouth litterally dropped like 2 feet. I was thinking...."are you on crack...?" I could play 4 months payments with that kind of money. So im thinkin of checkin out other places and seein what their prices are...if they are still high...i might just get a bodykit for my front bumper. Could you give me some ideas on what would look good on a sentra for bodykit..? I was thinkin R33 or R34 but i dunno...:) :cheers:

the price sounds about right. Stupid arm rest for 95 sentra costs like $80 from thm i think and a stupid fuse for A/C is like $40 or something. EVERYTHING at the dealer is EXPENSIVE.
Another alternative: Junk Yards, eBay
