There is probably a bit of damage, especially being the impact was 10-20. There could be damage underneath and just the bumper skin looks fine. And if you have parking sensors, they could be damaged.

I'm about to go pick it up from the shop in a few minutes, so when I get it home, I'll check for you.

The bumper beam is supposed to bend like that. What worries me is the hairline crack in the paint on the beam supports. This metal may have been impacted enough to cause a very small bend.

It was the water pump. I didn't have time to do it, and it wasn't terribly expensive to have done (my import indy only charges 50 bucks an hour) And I like the tires, they aren't the grippiest things in the world, but they are pretty good all season tires. I'm not sure of the specs, they were on the car when I bought it, but I used them last winter and they worked pretty well.

As far as the bumper support, yes, mine looks almost identical to that, minus the paint crack that WhiteT5 was talking about. That would be enough for me to have it looked at.
