i had my left rear quarter panel repaired and painted, can't tell it was repainted. I was happily surprised, i expected to be able to see it since i have the metallic gray. i would be more nervous about paint from a factory that you are hoping have not changed their paint in the slightest.
the question I would have is, What happens if you buy the factory painted bumper and it doesn't match. you will go through a lot more pain trying to get that replaced.
