I have a 2005 megane not long bought.Front left fender is a little damaged.It has a 20cm crack and a piece missing about the size of a 10 cent coin.I believe it is made of some type of thermoplastic.Should I have it repaired and painted(expensive?)and can a regular panel beater do the job or should I just buy a new fender?Can someone help?

Easier to replace than repair I think. They're not that hard to remove. They use some sort of adhesive in a couple of places for reasons I'm not sure about but probably just to prevent ingress of water and mud. Again, it's not hard to hack through the adhesive. Something like Sikaflex 221 would be fine to stick the new one on.

Why not try to find a second hand replacement?
