I looking at the picture more closely, I think you should be fairly ok. Your bumper cover and tail light are only scratched, so no replacement necessary at the moment. The dent itself looks like there are no really hard edges or creases, which will make fixing it easier. The only hard part will be where it meeds with the tail light, but it looks like you might be safe enough there. Paint is where you will get hit though. For hte quarter panel, they should paint it up into the trunk and follow the line of the c-pillar over to the door jam. As for the bumper, if you have any other blemishes on the back or other sides, see about doing it all while you are at it. Also ask if you might be able to save some money by disassembling it yourself. You'll have to remove the jackbox, interior carpet, antenna and rear bumpercover, which are easy to do. If it can save you an hour or two in labor cost, that could be close to $100.
The Alien'* paint should be an absolute bitch and a half to duplicate and match properly though cause it'* all colour shifty

I've never backed into anything. I never even scratched my car.
