This is good advice to consider - people take off and put back on their bumpers for headlight mods; there's instructions all over the place. If I were you I would verify that I can find a replacement bumper (and fog light housing) and have it painted for less than my deductible. If that's truly the case then I would take the bumper off myself to inspect for any damage beneath the surface, and if there isn't then pursue the labor myself.

PS. I cry every time I think of a Legacy GT taking damage like this, or even worse being junked altogether. It's not like you can say "F-it, I'm gonna lose out on this one and just buy a new one..." anymore...
