bumper fixing advice

hi everyone,

got an integra with a bumper that's cracked and being held in place by wrap-ties. Looking for opinions:

1. should i get the cracks sealed and the bumper repaired? If so, where is a good place to get this done and where can i get a price quote?

2. should i get a new bumper altogether? I know where i can get an oem used one for $200 which i think is a good deal. But where's a good place to go for getting it painted and put on? and how much will this cost me?

I'l leaning towards #2, since i think i can do the job for $500 or less this way and i won't have to have a "fixed" bumper being held together by wrap-ties...

any opinions would be awesome!

Painting should cost maybe $250 for the brand new one?.. This is just a quote I got from a shop when I was looking to get a bumper repainted last year

I dunno if prices vary drastically from shop to shop
