Default Bought new front bumper--Which Bay Area body shop to paint?

Looking for recs as to which body shop in the Bay Area (South Bay, San Jose) would do a decent job on painting a new front bumper. I just purchased one of the new OEM primed bumpers and will need it painted Cosmos Black.

Should I even consider a dealer who might be listed as a BMW Certified Collision Center? Only advantage I could see there is that they'd most likely use factory paint.

Also, anybody know a good source for the mesh center grill? Looks to be NLA as far as I can tell and I can only find some cheap plastic ones around.

Thanks.

You can get the grill at ECS...if no other member respond, I would call the dealer in your area and ask for recommendations.
