How much to have a front bumper cover painted?

So I want to replace my front bumper cover and it seems like I have several options.

1. Buy one that is already painted. Don't know if its CAPA or not.
2. Buy CAPA or OEM and have local shop paint it.
3. Hunt for one in good shape in a junkyard.

I guess the one question that will drive my decision will be this. How much would it cost to have a body shop color match my car? If I pay $200 for a new primered bumper cover how much more to have it painted?

I paid $338, found out after that $128 was labor.

Did you get the cover from the body shop who painted it? Did that include them mounting it?

I don't think mine was primed from the seller.

Really. If I can get one that cheap I'll just have them do it all. I was going to take a cover in and have someone paint it and I'll mount it for the fun of it and save some money. At that price screw it. Let them do it all. Thanks for the info!
