2011 E92 335i

Hi guys. Currently trying to upgrade from e90 328 to e92 335. I found a car with 53k miles and mechanically it seems pretty sound but the front of the car isn't in the best of shape. The bumper is pretty severely pitted with scratches and there are a decent amount of chips in the hood and a pair of dents dead center in it along with chips and a couple more chips on the A-pillars. The dealer (a used car dealer) says they're gonna strip the hood and bumper and repaint.

The color is black sapphire metallic and I'm a bit worried they won't blend it right.

The vehicle is priced at 16k, so its a steal but I'm concerned if I should go through with it, any advice? Pics attached!

Bumper (car is uncleaned, dents/scratch are dead center on hood, difficult to see):

E92 hoods don't have the two ribs down the middle.

To properly repaint the hood, bumper, and blend the fenders is probably a $1500-2000 job.

I wouldn’t say that’s a steal at all. We have 2013’s in fair/poor conditions that sell for this much.
