Can I get away with painting just the bumper?
 
My oem front bumper has a TON of rockchips in it, the only reason it still looks somewhat decent from a distance is that the car is silver and the silver primer underneath doesn't look that different from far away.

As you all know any breakage is an excuse to an upgrade, so I was thinking about picking up a replica M3 front bumper and throwing that on there.

Problem is that my car is a 99' and I am a little worried about whether or not it will match?

I would rather not have the paint blended up on the hood and fenders just because... well at that point I might as well paint the whole car, but I don't plan on dropping the cash for that now..... eventually yes, but not now.

If your shop paint matches your car and doesnt just use regular paint based on paint code

the bmw silvers are usually a very good color match with any of the top paint lines..(then again it also depends on the sprayer), I woulnt worry about blending the adjacent panels. jus take it to a good shop and it should be good to go
