Clipped a wall on drivers side, bumper hanging down, side wing needs replacing.

Hi everyone,

okay so my drive, you have to like reverse round a slight corner, and theres a stupid wall thats on that corner and i clipped it the other week.
The damage to the wall was more apparent to the car thank god. However i'm dreading to find out how much it will cost to get my cars bodywork on the front side sorted. So i figured i'd ask here.

You cant really see from the photo but basically, all the lights are fine, none got broken. Its just that side of the bumper has come out of place, i've had it stuck back into place with gaffa tape since then, which has been doing the job fine. Its not scratched or dented or anything, i just want to know if i took it to a garage would they want to replace the whole bumper? or would they be able to find a way to secure it for me?

Also the side front wing panel has been scratched and cracked, so i'm looking to replace that. I've seen parts on ebay from car part dealers that go for around 15-20 for that panel in dark blue 1998-2000 so i think this is what i need? Is it worth me buying the part myself then asking the garage to fit it? or will they charge me a ridiculous amount.
