So someone hit me and ran off while I was parallel parked in front of work. Cracked the rear bumper, not noticeably, but enough to where I'm mad about it. Can I use any other Passat rear bumper and just swap the lower valance?

If you need the metal bumper I have a spare since I have a Westfailia tow bar.

Yes, according to the Mitchell collision repair manual, they are the same cover. If it's not that bad you could get it filled.

Bummer about it but it's sad to know there are people in the world like that.

I'm hoping to find a black bumper so I don't have to repaint anything. But if I can't then I will fill it, it's definitely repairable. I just don't want to have to fill it and prep it and paint it because I'm lazy, lol.

I looked the bumper cover up on ETKA just to double check and yes they are the same.
