Thinking about getting my hood repainted.

Well I just purchased a 2008 CPO 335i and I noticed the dealership did a rather crappy job with the touch up on the rock chips on the hood. So I'm wondering about how much it would be to get the hood repainted.

The car is Crimson Red.

Also, I'm looking to get a Aero lip, and a M3 truck lid spoiler. So I would possibly be getting this all painted at the same time. Can anyone give me an approximate on how much I would looking to pay at a shop that will do the job right?

Be cautious with paint, it's pretty normal to get bumpers repainted but once you break that factory paint seal it raises a red flag for people and can bring the value down a bit.

Right, and the repaint will be prone to chip easier. I would clear guard it if you decide to repaint it.
It would probably be about 500 or so.
