bunch of rock chips, how much to fix?

As the title says,

I have quite a few rock chips on my front bumper, by quite a few I mean shit load lol. How much should I be looking at to repaint? It's sparkling graphite color. 2008 335i.

What part of TX are you in? I know a few people have recommended paint and body shops in the DFW area. Try asking in the regional forums.

I'll be getting my hood and bumper repainted this summer for the same reason (stupid jet black paint -- it chips like crazy). I was looking at around $400 ish, but haven't done much shopping around yet.

Houston! Thanks for the advice! 400 isn't bad! I have A LOT of rock chips and it's annoying to look at my bumper because of that reason!

I got the same problem with BSM. Has anyone suggested or does suggest wet sanding for most of these chips? Quite curious if that will work.

There's mobile painters that will respray bumpers for $275.

Car dealers use them. Same process as the body shops. Ask around.
