Long term considerations. (Painting)

hmm... my celi has small scratches here and there, and the rear bumper got rearended (small paint crack off) and the front is just...fucked up paint job(a little darker than stock body) + paint cracked from me rearending my friend's car to the meet last day (no biggy) ...

anyway, the question is... should i consider repaint the whole car(prefferably to another color) or just repaint my front and rear bumpers and be happy with it??

cos the stock paint is too easily scratched...and i dono why the front would just crack and not chp off...

so wut you guys think? if im to repaint the whole car, i'll have to save for about 5-6 months...and if i just repaint the bumpers i can do it within 1-2 weeks...

P.S: the cracks are not that noticeble unless see it up close... it doesnt really bother me that much (altho a little) cos it's daily driven, nto a show car.

question is - do you like your car the way it is, or would you rather have a change? Once you make your decision, be resolute. Sometimes impatience causes one to do something hurriedly and not achieve the truly desired result.
