First question, I had a bumper accident which tore off right side of the rear bumper cover, not completely but the right side just hangs. How much would I be looking at cost wise to repair / replace a rear bumper cover for my 1996 Mercedes C220. Would you recommend going to the dealership or taking to my own mechanic? There seem to be no quotes online as to where to purchase rear bumper or where to look for it so that I can compare prices. (Do you know of any good cheep online stores that you have used to purchase auto parts ?)

Secondly just last few days the "check engine" light has been on, so I was wondering what are the possible causes of this and what is the list of items (most common to less common) to check for to diagnose the problem.

Thank you very much everyone,

I think you should save your $$ and get your car into a reputable Body Shop.
Years ago when I worked getting my family friends business up and running I was surprised at what all went into Body Repairs.
You would think they REPLACE a lot of things but in fact he REPAIRED a lot of
what I thought was destroyed. Customer saved many $$$ and the end result
was quicker, cheaper and probably better for all involved by effecting repairs with OEM panels.

Three estimates will give you a really good idea where you stand and compare that to your $$$ threshold.
