    Best source for replacement bumper?

    So I managed to back my 09 wrx into an invisible car, putting a good dent in my bumper. Should I go to the dealership or is there a cheaper alternative?

    Thanks!

    Wait 'til some fool puts his in to a tree and totals it. Buy the rear bumper off him.

    Keep a vigilant eye on craigslist and all the forums, something will turn up.

    Nope. Dealership.

    Thanks all. Looks like it'll cost $239 from the dealership, but I'll have to get it painted and installed. They quoted the whole repair as $1500, so I'll just buy it from them and run around town trying to find the cheapest collision repair shop. This should actually cost a lot less than I expected.

    I haven't done it myself so I could be mistaken, but I imagine it's not that tough to R/R a rear bumper.
