Sorry... an accident like that really sucks.
You're probably looking at a new bumper cover, the actual piece of plastic on the outside. The internals of the bumper are most likely OK.
Painted, installed, and with the black bumper pad (the plastic strip with the Lexus logo) replaced, you're looking at around $600-$700.

$600-700? Im thinking with that i could get a new bumper... Hopefully when i go to the dealer theyll give me some better news...

Anyone know any body shops in the pasadena/alhambra area that is not too pricy but do a good job? Thanks

Given the condition shown in the photo, the bumper can be filled, sanded, and repainted. Probably $300 doing it this way. The light assembly is probably $30 or so.
