help needed.. scraped the wall

i was having a great day.. didnt have to go in to work till 1pm today so i got to eat lunch with no rush at my favorite burger place..got to work.. there was some car parked crooked and the only parking spot left was next to it so i pulled in along side his crooked position and my dumbass being usedto pulling the car up till the wheels hit the stone bar on the floor didnt realized at my angle id go all the way to the wall.. i had the music loud and didnt realize i was hitting the wall.. well i hit the wall and scraped my front right corner of my bumper..it has lil white marks on it and its scuffed i can see the black paint chipping off... how much do u guys think its gonna cost to fix? does the whole bumper need to be repainted? or can they jus smooth out the paint there and touch it up.. there was no dents or nothing

A body shop would have to look and see how bad it is

If the paint is chipping off, my guess is you'll need a repaint of the bumper... your paint being metallic, it's hard to color match as it is so if only a small section is repainted, it might show. Sorry to hear bout this.

try to buff it out and if it is chiped you can buy touch-up paint from your dealer. So you wont have to replace the whole bumper.

The whole bumper will be repainted for that price? If so, sounds like a decent price. Just make sure they're sending the bumper to a reputable painter because as ogrady said, metallic paint is harder to color match, so make sure they have a good reputation with this stuff.
