Someone banged badly into rear, when parked in parking lot (hit and run case). The plastic got cracked different places on one side. New one will cost $1000, and cant find one from junk.

Anyone knows of any (coloured) glue / epoxy to repair the cracks. At one place it got cracked through and separated (for inside to be seen).

Tough luck. Did it crack the foam blocks behind the bumper? My 99 Es was hit as I sat at a yield, the bumper bounced back but it split the styrofom blocks that support the bumper. Ended up costing his insurance $4000 to fix it.

I would think a good body shop could fix the bumper though, as long as everything is ok underneath. Mine was champagne, they painted the whole bumper and rear deck lid, paint matched good.

It did crack the foam behind the plastic at few small places. The tie bar that supports the bumper is still intact. I was hoping someone knows a "do it yourself kit" or a colored (mine's white) glue that would stick the separated cracks, and fill some small ones that show black from the underlying foam.
So far I have taken to 4 bodyshops and they all want to replace it - They want $$$$$$ I guess :-(

Not much you can do except for replace it.

That is the way they make those things, to crumple, and crush.
