Anyone lease or have lease from MB?

I am leasing an E320, and a ML320, both have some some little dings and scratches (that's why we lease some cars, and buy others rights?) but he ML has a crack in the rear bumper. Cannot be bondoed, too jagged, do you guys recommend taking it to a body shop to be repaired, or just let Mercedes deduct from deposit?

use 40-40
pick these up at like redline automotive
then if u dont got those nearby try pepboys autozone etc
40-40 fixes cracked bumpers up like elmers glue is to ripped up school projects... such a bad analogy

I would go to body shop - it will cost you 3 times less then the bill you would get from MB Credit at the end of the lease.
Yet, I would recommend to fix it a couple of weeks prior to turning in you car.

Ok, thanks. I already tried fixing it, better, but still visible, so i guess i'll send it to a bodyshop.

Thanks for the tips.

If you have an actual lease from Mercedes, any damage, ding, scrape, or even hole that can be covered by a credit card won't be charged against you. Check your lease agreement.

This is something new...

My friend just turned in his ML320 with rear and front bumper scratches (nothing major) and end up with $1250 bill for excessive wear & tear.
Yet this job could be done in a nice body shop for less than $500.
