Bad new is that the buckling may require bumper replacement. Good news is that if it does require replacement, I have one. Bad news is that I am in Alabma.

there is no way to fix the buckling at all without buying a new bumper?

Do not know, maybe someone else here can chime in, you can also try to get an estimate at alocal body shop and see what they say. Usually my experiencewith plastic buckling means repalcement of said part. Make sure you get a professionals advice or say on this, I could be wrong with the new parts they may be different.


And my bumper is Laser Blue in color.
