    HIT SEND BEFORE FINISHED.
    Ok - on my way to a business event in Palm Springs on 3/31. Being a good wife and knowing my husband wanted the 3, I looked at the spreadsheet of lines at showrooms and saw that there was none in Palm Springs. I set the nav and head straight for it. Spreadsheet was correct, no lines. I finally locate someone inside and advised they were not taking reservations, but Palm desert location was. Hopped into my S and as I was backing out (screen for some reason blacked out at that moment) and tapped into a pole.
    Not deterred I went on to Palm desert and ordered the S for the husband.

    Now upset about the gouge, as I am meticulous about the car. So to get to the point, does the plastic bumper color go all the way through and I can simply have it buffed out, or do I place my HOV sticker over it?

    Didn't need to go to the store to order an S...you can do that online. As for buffing, take it to a reputable detailer and they will tell you what can be done. As long gone as there are no gouges or dents, buffing should work.

    I meant I ordered the 3 for him. I'll try the detailed first.

    That will not buff out. It will require a repair and repaint. The entire bumper cover is only around $400 I believe. If it was my car I would order a new bumper cover.
