Get a couple of estimates to do both item. Usually the chips can be filled painted and buffed so they are not noticable (much cheaper). If the rest of the paint is okay maybe this will work. You'll probably have to detail the car so it will be as shiny and smooth as the chip painted area.

Send a message via AIM to skawful
get it detailed, and even repaint the bumpers. It will look awesome.

what do you mean by replace and repaint 1000$? and what was the 250$ for just your front bumper?

The lowest section of the E60 bumper. It's about 4-5 inches wide. The $1k price was from a high end body shop. The $250 estimate was from a "Bumpers R Us" franchise....both do work for my dealer.

This is for comparison purposes only and depending on how much needs to be done to yours, probably doesn't apply to your car.
