Take it in, get it all fixed up, and make sure they look at the suspension and alignment. Don't listen to everybody here saying "It looks all cosmetic", because there's no way to tell from a few pictures.

Supramk3 Just got mine back from the body shop, 5 day repair for almost that exact same hit on my sedan. $2800 repair and its more then just the outer bumper cover. id be looking for structural damage of the main body

F35-JSF Be sure to have them check the suspension I got tapped in one of my old cars at about 5-10 mph. No discernable damage drove fine barely a scratch. A couple of weeks later I went for an oil change and found out tie rods and endlinks needed to be repaired.

Brabs_Weather Just a thought let the insurance adjuster do there job and nit pick everything you disagree with. I hope you were not injured. The damage does look cosmetic at first but you could have damage to your suspension since it looks like they hit the rear wheel. Take lots of photos for you records.

BlueIce It looks like you may have lucked out, it should all be cosmetic. Like others said, have the suspension checked. I'd also check the alignment just to be safe since you were hit. A bad alignment can end up costing you a lot more down the road.

Slo86GT After repairs, take the car for an alignment to verify that the suspension mounting points weren't affected.
