Cost to repaint rockers / rear bumper?

Hey guys, I recently found a bunch of tiny chips on both my rockers and my rear bumper. The offending areas are behind those behind the front and rear wheels. Is there any way that I could fully repair this without a repaint? If not, how much would it cost to repaint the rockers and rear bumper? Also, if anyone else has been in a similar position, I would like to hear how you rectified the issue.

Thanks!

Depending on color, touch up paint will minimize the eyesore to various degrees. You can also go the spray paint route for a diy fix.

Yeah, I think this will ultimately be what I do. I figured I would just throw it out there in case there was another alternatve. My local BMW dealer is also a certified repair center, would it be worth running it by them?
