Bought my 2010 Mazda 3 on July 2009.
iTouring
Grey Metallic

I have a lot of dents on my rear bumper + I hate that black part of the Bumper.

2 questions:
1) If I bother repainting it, will it drop the value down of my car?

2) If i do repaint:
I saw a post that someone repainted it with plain dark grey, but what I'm thinking was to repaint it to Grey Metallic (same color as my car) so it would seem like 1 piece.. I can't replicate the color, should I completely send it to the auto body. or would it be cheaper if I remove the bumper - repair, prime the bumper and bring it to an auto body to repaint the bumper.

be sure to take off the reflectors. in my state, you could get a really fat ticket for not having them shine :T if you wanted to do it yourself, it'd be extremely difficult. you could get some paint from mazda directly in the color of your car and have a body shop paint it for you. im pretty sure whether you remove it or not, it'd probably cost just a few dollars in labor anyway
