Default Repair or Replace Rear Bumper

My neighbor backed into my xB parked in the street today. The rear bumper cover is cracked in the corner; probably about a 1-1/2" crack. Can one of these plastic bumper covers be repaired to a reasonable standard, or is replacement a must?

Thanks in advance.

It probably can be repaired and painted. You could also do what I did -- put a sticker of some kind over the boo boo and forget about it.
Cheers,

Pics would be nice, but from what you describe it sounds very much repairable. A plastic welder works wonders and gives the bumper back its structural integrity.
