Yep, in my experience, as long as the cars are new and with low miles, you'll get new or "re-conditioned" OEM parts.

Yours doesn't look bad right now, but until the shop removes the bumper cover, you wont know for sure. But I think you got lucky. The damage isn't that bad on the Mitsu.

Here's the damage to my JGC last year while in bumper to bumper traffic. Almost $8K once it's all said and done. Was originally estimated at about $5500. That didn't even include the ~3-4 weeks worth of rental.

Re: Rear Ended Brand New WK2

Yet another honeymoon interrupted by distracted drivers. Sorry to hear about your accident and really hope it's no big deal in terms of damage.

My then 2 weeks old Limited 75th anniversary also got some tough love from someone who thought that texting was more important than checking whether the traffic light had turned red for her. That was almost 1 month ago and I just picked it up from the shop last Saturday.
