fixing rear bumper

My rear bumper cover has a couple of minor dents in the plastic and something like small "wrinkle" - plastic a bit pushed in, strangely without paint damage. It is visible when the car is clean and bothers me a bit. Is stuff like that usually fixed by replacing a bumper or just a repaint? I am thinking if I should fix that - I'd do it if it's a $500 job, but would probably wait if its $2K job...

I have the same issue on my rear bumper some asshole hit me while I was double parked and I got the imprint of his license plate screws on my rear bumper, the paint is still intact though.

Personally I'm not going to repaint it, if you want a quality job that will match your original paint it will end up costing 2 k with a new bumper.

And quite frankly if you leave it as id the value of your car will be higher if you ever decide to sell the car, once you tell a buyer that you repainted the rear bumper, they automatically think it's been in An accident..

I'm looking at some options of getting it fixed, there's a place near my house that does paintless dent repairs, going to check them out!
