Bumper repaint

Hey guys, I have a bumper that was hit and chipped on the right side of the rear bumper. Had a friend repaint over this area (chip was about a quarter size) but the paint he used wasnt a match with the rest of the bumper. So now there's a circle mismatched paint about the size of a baseball.

One shop that i found on craigslist said that they would blend the mismatched paint with the rest of the bumper, but im not sure how this would turn out like. They said they would repaint the whole bumper for $200 or blend it for $100.

now my questions is, do you guys think I should get the whole bumper repainted or should i just get it blended?

and do you guys know of any shops here in vancouver that would be able to do a decent job for a decent price?

here's a pic

most reputable autobody shops will charge you between 250$ to 350$ to repaint the entire bumper.

that's a pretty bad paint patch lol

just get the entire bumper redone it would cost you about $500 out the door with labour.

i had mine redone at grandcity for a small hit (it was the size of 3 rock chips, the lady rear ended me while her car was in gear but engine off), it cost her $500.. and we were like.. WOW shit that's expensive.

lots of shops will blend it in if you want. I think the price was around $100 plus depending on how bad it was
