Curb rash and rock ding on bumper

I was the recent recipient of a stone tossed my way by oncoming traffic. It hit the driver-side bumper just under the headlight. It left a scuff and a small chip. To add insult to injury, I had a close encounter with a curb and now have curb-rash on my right rear wheel.



MW wants to charge me $230 for the wheel, and I'm waiting for a quote on the chip and scuff. Based on the wheel quote, I'm expecting the chip repair to be ridiculous too.

I did a search and couldn't find any current, relevant information. Any recommendation of a better way to go about getting these minor blemishes repaired? I'm a perfectionist, so I definitely want them fixed.

I really like Certified Auto Body in Lake County. If Fields BMW cannot do something (e.g. repair dents in roof) they tell you to go there; that's how I found out about them. They are expensive but their work is top notch. I would go there for the bumper, the curb rash I would find the cheapest place since it prolly will get messed again - no offense to you, it is just the kind of thing that can happen easily.

Try these guys for the wheel. They are the company that my dealership contracts through. They come to your house and repair the wheel for you. They quoted me $120 to refinish one of my wheels:

yes, do this, it comes out just like new. The dealerships use guys like this when you come in to get your wheels fixed, difference is they make money off of you to be the middle man.
