Bumper scratch on 6 months mark.......

I don't know if it's possible to be accident free for the entire duration of the lease. but here it is, scratch free no more..... sin commited against a friggin concrete column for avoiding a car that have gone over the line in his parking spot.... of course, it was also my brain being stupid and dead to not realize my spot is smaller than usual.....

Anybody know about how much is the right quote to fix this to like new? I am getting a $4XX CAD quote for remove, paint remove and complete repaint of the entire rear bumper.... which $4XX is quite pricy IMO. Just want to know if something like this usually merits a complete repaint, and if so does the price figure sounds about right?

Also, since it's the rear bumper, it's made out of pastic with no corrosion risk correct? Any advice will be appreicated. Thanks!

4XX cad should be around 300ish USD so it's about right.
unless you are going to get yourself touch-up paint, there's no solution other than repainting.
