is this FIXABLE???

i recently got into a car accident my body shop told me to replace the bumper and did but i felt like it wasnt such a big accident i wanna repair the bumper and
sell it

the rear damege is the car i hit.. as you can see i hit the person at like 8mph my bumper looks bad but only cause of the license plate ...

Is it cracked? Looks pretty bad... bumper is plastic and though it probably can be kind of repaired (unmounted, heated, straightened (as much as possible), glued, sanded repainted, remounted) the price will likely be above the price of a new one.

How much do you think you can sell it for when you have to put $250 into it?

Good to hear, and a good deal, but I'm betting it wasn't a BMW body-shop ;-)
