I would complain pointedly. Your company does not seem to value individualism.

It's more likely to be the inner steel bumper or the actual bodywork. The ur-
quattro's rear bumper is _very_ easy to remove - four nuts inside the boot.
If it's the bodywork, pass a rope through the holes on that side and over a
lump of wood. Tie the rope to a tree and push the car gently away from it.
If it's the inner bumper, treat all the bolts retaining the skin with Plus-Gas
or something and try to wind them out in a week or so. Then you can bash away
at the inner bumper to your heart's content.
