04' hatch, titanium grey.

Hit another car, and now I need to replace my front bumper.
Planning on getting a factory replacement as the cost over the cheapest CAPA certified one I found was only $75.

Will I or the shop doing the paint see any real difference between the factory Mazda and CAPA certified?

If I or the shop just had the factory color mixed up is there likely to be a noticeable color mismatch due to age of the rest of the paint on the car?

I imagine there is a huge price range for a bumper cover repaint, but I'm planning on only asking the body shop to do the paint, and I do the install.

Any idea what I should pay for a new bumper respray?

Any other wisdom/advice?
(I do realize I have a few additional bits to replace, and have them ID'd and sourced)

I'd say look for one in a junkyard. May take time and be hard to find your color in good condition, but give it some effort and you may find a perfectly good bumper for $50
