    Punched a hole in a MB E320. Placed a AAA sticker over it. Three years later, traded it in. Other than my wife and me, no one else knew there was a hole in the bumper.

    Oh that reminds me like an earlier poster said, go pickup body matched paint, and some sign vinyl paint the vinyl and band aid it over the hole

    Thanks for the replies, all.

    I got a 2nd estimate and it was even higher - $1500! Both places refused to attempt a repair saying replacement was the only option. Hmmm.

    I was selling my parent's car a few years and my dad put a sticker over part of the fender to cover a dent. I guess it was an odd place to put a sticker as everyone who came to look at the car headed straight for the sticker and peeled it off.

    Maybe they don't have the expertise to repair a bumper cover, so they joined the replace-it-rather-than-fix-it club.

    As mentioned above, seek out a bumper repair specialist.

    Also, check with a networked used parts place. They may be able to locate a bumper cover that you could install yourself and then have painted to match your van.

    Wow! If it were only a simple clean puncture it would be a different story! It would be good to seek out a place which specializes in bumper repair and get an assessment. If these places give you a high quote you may want to consider a DIY replacement, should be able to pull it off for much less than what has been quoted.

    You could try to get a bumper cover at a salvage yard (down this way they are called prior owned vehicle part networks) in decent shape with the same color, it shouldn't be too difficult to swap them out. You could also get an aftermarket color matched bumper cover but it may not be an exact color match--or a primed aftermarket bumper cover, but it may be pricey to have it painted and top coated.

    Keep us in the loop!

    If you look up mounting a hitch, certain ones require the removal of the bumper assy. It looks pretty easy. Check out e-trailer for u-tube videos.

    That's called fraud and could land you in jail.

    Wow. I can’t believe the below posters would recommend someone to go and commit fraud. Seriously?

    I think you're full of crap because you left no indication it was a joke. Nor did the person who agreed with you. Nice try getting someone arrested over a bumper cover though.

    Wow Mister morality police if you couldn't understand that doing something illegal like that was obviously a joke and you seriously have to look at yourself and ask am I being virtuous here to the obvious. Since you aren't providing any solution to the problem they say you should keep your comments to yourself.

    I still maintain you were not joking, you never mentioned it until I called you out. Someone quoted you and agreed with your idea, which both suggests it wasn't easy to tell it was a joke and that they were also encouraging using your idea.
    Morality police? If you mean calling someone out for doing something bad that harms the rest of polite society you're darn right I will.

    You can take your own advice since if you were truly joking you weren't providing a solution either. You can't have it both ways. Either you were joking and not helping, or you weren't joking and provided a bad solution.

    I can assure I picked up on the joke as well. I surely hope nobody would actually do this.
