    I dont really know m8, I do know that the skirts have stone chip protection on them, think thats why theyre that sh*tty gray colour, dunno how youd go on about painting over that

    Probably be cheaper than you think getting it done at a bodyshop

    I'm 99.999999999% sure that the grey stone chip cack on the skirts scrubs off to reveal nice shiney colour co-ordinated paint

    BMW brilliant red (sometimes called bright red).

    As i said, the grey on the skirts should scrub off, the bumpers are easy to spray up with aerosols despite the myth that it can't be done - its down to good prep, and some rubbing down to finish.
