What year RAV? Loads of bumpers on e-bay.

Have you had a 'Smart' Repairer look at it? They can do wonders in a lot of cases.

I had a bump from an uninsured driver which wrecked the nearside rear bumper.

The replacement (new) was £175 IIRC but was definitely unpainted.

A friend of a friend of a friend did the job for me at cost.

Good advice from Dave. I had our front bumper done by a local mobille guy & it was a reasonably good job at a fair price.

Google your local Mr. Chips or the like.

Agreed they come unpainted. Bodyshops can often repair them though if they are still securely mounted.
