    Caught front bumper on high curb and ripped it away from body

    I caught a high curb backing out of a driveway yesterday and it ripped the driver side bumper loose. I checked and one screw hole is torn loose and towards the top where it fits into the next panel is messed up a little too. I put it back together and drove it, I think it will be ok for a while if I replace the three screw-in fasteners on the side by the wheel. I just got the car and don't even have plates on it yet! Bad luck and my bad because I have not gotten expert at watching for low-clearance obstacles yet as I am used to driving a truck. I wonder if I should get an insurance estimate, go the dealer for a estimate, or go to an independent Subaru repair shop...
