Clio III Front End Damage

Renault Clio III 2006.

Went into the back of someone, around 5mph.

The reinforcement bar is bent, just missing the radiator luckily. Bumper did its job but it is showing the damage, it is slightly out of place, with some scuffs and marks where it bent, also lost the grilles, badge and the housing on one of the lights has broken.

No problems driving it though, arches are fine and drives like normal.

Now the advice I'm after is should I take it to a garage or try and do it myself? If I am going to do it myself where is the best place to source the parts from? The main thing I can't find for cheap is the bumper, I've not found one that matches the colour, D75 Volcano. I have found a company that can provide a bumper and paint it for 270, but that seems a bit steep.

Any other advice or thoughts would be appreciated.

Currently in CaptainNigel's garage:
