So the other day I got rear ended. I own a 2003 Ford Focus SE Wagon. I dont know much about cars. I looked underneath the bumber and the frame (atleast what thats what I think it is looks fine. Then theres a little foam looking spacer and then the plastic bumper. The foam looks undamaged, but the bumper is pretty messed up. The 2 Rear side panels are fine its just the back bumper plastic peice and the driver side Tail Lite. Called the Ford Dealership and they were asking for 400ish for the bumper and 130ish for the Tail Lite. That seemed pretty expensive. I seen the Tail lite for 60 on ebay. I'm not sure what I need to buy, so If any1 could help me that would be great. my name is james. Please Help

Thank you

First off. Welcome.
Second. I almost guarentee someone on here can hook you up w/ a tail light for under $30. The bumper for probably under $100. Try looking on ebay a little harder.

I've got a Pitch Black bumper from my '05 that I'm trying to get rid of for $60, not sure if it'll fit Wagons, it came from my ZX3.

Hey Tome-E09 ---I used to live in abilene before my wife and I moved to lubbock
No way did you happen to have green neons underneath your car...and cruise first

just an update on my car
the estiamte cost of the damage done to my car is about $5000 if it goes up they might total it. it completeky smashed the bumper inside all the way to the frame, snapped off the metal brackets that hole the bumper assembly on and pushed the trunk lid up but im hoping for the best 'cause i can still see the potential of that car

GET THE BUMPER SOMEWHERE ELSE! i need a new bumper too, body shop quoted $400 if they get the bumper, and that's a STOCK bumper. i plan to go svt or aftermarket. though your choices are greatly limited due to being a wagon, i really have no clue what your aftermarket choices are, but i can nearly guarantee that if you can't find a used bumper here on the forums, you can still manage to get one for cheaper off ebay.
