    confused Standard Rear Bumpers!

    I know this sounds weird. But April just gone, I was rear ended. Completly smashed my bumper beyond repair.

    My car has been back to the same repair centre 3 times since April and still havent been able to get me a decent looking bumper.

    They keep telling me they are all brand new. and each one has the same defects and vauxhall told them so.

    I was just wondering...is this a load of bull or not because they are telling me its a dicontinued car.

    (sorry if its in wrong section, not sure if this qualifies to go under the bodywork part or not!)

    deformaties on both corners and behind the number plate, like ripples in the plastics.

    They tried a repair on one and it still looks crud because its scrubbed out the contours, im still waiting on the insurance company to find me an alternative...

    Sounds like they've sourced a second hand bumper, or a cheap patterned part, trying to do thing on the cheap, either for the insurance company or for their own ends.

    You know, I knew from day one its a refurb, it has all the GM insignia on the inside...i mean a million bumpers are not all going to be the same, someone will have noticed if they were turning out a few hundered deformed ones!!
