Go to Tesla on this one.
They'll replace the bumper with a pre-painted one from inventory. My cost was $1,125 and it took 50 minutes.
I'll repeat that: 50 minutes. They could literally do it while I waited.
If you have some damage underneath, that'll go up, but the guy said the most common from typical rear-enders is a cross bar getting dented, which would have cost an extra $300 to replace.
I doubt if there's any diminished value issues here.
Diminished value isn’t caused by the value of the damage or how cleanly it can be repaired. It’s the vague reports that are filed once police or insurance companies are in the loop and haunt you later when you go to sell or trade.
The person that hit the OP should have offered to cover it 100% no questions. But the fool called the Police. Their insurance will probably cost them way more than what the repair cost.
