Scuffed my lower bumper...recommendations on how best to repair?

Curb jumped out on me


Was going to sand and use BMW touch up paint but BMW no longer carries Tasman Green Metallic. Maybe Dr ColorChip?

Any recommendations appreciated

Their paints match very well. I have a bottle of Tasman green from them. You can get in spray cans, touchup bottles, or containers ready for spray gun.

Be sure to watch their video on painting bumpers! Give you an idea what other products of theirs would be beneficial to use besides merely Tasman green paint.

You may have a problem matching just by paint fade. Compare the color where the paint doesn't see sun like the trunk, under the hood, door jamb, etc and see if you can see a difference. If too great might want to put a black accent across the whole bottom lip of the bumper.

True, about a good match to faded paint...but on the underside of the bumper, which is inherently not highly exposed to sun, especially on a 3 year old car?!

I've had those mobile bumper repair guys fix two of my scuffs and the most I paid was $175.00 for a long one I didn't do myself. Took the guy about an hour and a half. Perfect!
