I have no idea whether CarFax will have information on your car from your getting an estimate, or whether there has to be an insurance claim to trigger that. I suppose you could pull a CarFax report on your Honda yourself, to show prospective buyers that that's the only problem. I had a guy open his door into the wheelwell arch of my 1988 Honda CRX Si, once. It made a dime-sized wrinkle that was only noticable at certain angles. I left it as it was, in those pre-CarFax days, because I didn't want to risk the repair coming out poorly, and having prospective buyers wonder just how bad the "accident" really was. If you can show them the CarFax report, especially if the bumper cap does not appear in it, then you should be good to go. As for the warranty, I would mention it's being available as a means of trying to sell the car faster, not for more money. Most people feel that extended warranties are a waste of money—they're sold at a profit, remember. And this is a Honda you're selling, not a mid-1970s Chrysler product.
