How much damage is this to fix
Does it seem like just cosmetic?

I agree.georgecantstandya wrote: ↑ That's not going to be cheap. What exactly is there to glue back?
Since it's going to require paint and potentially bonding; you're looking at $1000 in my experience. They will likely repaint the whole bumper sill to make it look even. If you are picky about looks, i wouldn't trust a $500 Macco job.

Exactly. I would ask for some money off the sale price, and then just leave it as is. Later on.... maybe... just maybe.... Search for an OEM bumper of exactly the same color, and install it myself

Oh, in that case it could easily be over $2k to fix properly. Especially since there may be damage underneath. Probably only bumper cover and foam underneath need to be replaced ($2k+ at dealer), but possibly some metal damage s well. Only way to know for sure is to remove and inspect.

Walk away. If the repair quality isn't "like factory new", the leasing company will bill you additional $$$$ to redo the repair to "like factory new" condition. They use their standard of repair quality, not yours

Likely just cosmetic, but may be damage underneath that cannot be seen. Yes - that’ll need to be dealt with. Either get it fixed yourself then return it, or leave it as is when you return and they’ll charge you the cost of the repair at their preferred shop less the $750 wear & tear coverage. You’ll probably be on the hook for $250 to $750 out of pocket assuming it’s a $1,000 to $1,500 repair estimate.

You're right, I looked at the price for the WT. Gotta find out how much it actually covers.
