welcome.

there are no downsides if it is done at a reputiable shop.

Well eventually it could chip from a rock or something, but that's if you don't go to a reputable shop.

I found my paint code on the outside of the little humps where to wheel comes down from, under the hood. (brain fart, cant think of a name ) Also, i plan to paint mine this weekend. I have bought spray cans, but do i need to prime the bumpers first or anything else?

Nab the VIN off the inside of your door and any BMW dealership can tell you your color code.

The paint name is located on the driv er shock tower. If the number is not listed with it, then it will be on the drivers door jamb.
