I'm confused, some say factory painted might not Match at all and that it's better to paint I locally......
Go for a local, reputable shop. Call up your local BMW dealer and ask which 3rd party body shop they use. NEVER use a dealer bodyshop. As well call up a Ferrari/Maserati/Lamborghini Dealer near you and ask who they use for auto body repairs. You can find quite a few good shops that will do an EXCELLENT job repairing the damage or replacing/painting your bumper.
