I got a deep scratch on my 45th's bumper and you can never really match a metallic paint. I ordered the Dr. Colorchip set and after 10 coats (to build up the paint thickness), it blended perfectly without a full repaint. You might want to give it a try.

No humor intended but living in NYC must be a scary place for bumpers.

Looks like an overhaul and refinish to me, plus r&i front plate bracket.
