Some moron did not secure the load and dropped a plastic office chair onto the freeway. It spun into my lane where I had no choice but to brake as much as possible but still nail it. My front bumper and grill were damaged. The main problem now is that the front bumper is a discontinued item from Mercedes, and the body shop cannot find an aftermarket source.

Any idea where I might locate a replacement? I'm located in Utah, so I assume the only reasonable option would be one found in North America. The body shop found one on ebay, but the insurance company doesn't want to cover the full cost, only what Mercedes lists as the factory cost which remarkably is less than a used part on ebay.

Thanks for any suggestions.
