I knocked a tiny bit of paint off my bumper about a year ago. Our body shop quoted me 400 dollars to fix the 2" x 1/4" scrape and told me there was no guarantee it would match.

Does this sound right to you all? I was expecting to pay 200 at very most. The color of the car is in the avi.

A good body shop will charge alot. Is $400 for the whole bumper and they are sayin it wont match the rest of the car? You should be able to find it cheaper though

Check my garage, reputable in my area most definitely. There is a ring of about 4 body shops that compete with paint jobs. I have been to 3 of them with different vehicles and I was pleased. There was one bubble but it was fixed as soon as I noticed it. It is a tad lighter than original redfire pearlcoat but I got greedy with the color flake because it's ridiculously expensive.
