Do you mean paint yourself or get painted ? If you was getting done then defo ok with 2 pac primer although I have spray lots of bits of plastics and rear bumper myself with no issues its all in the prep though tbh !! And good lacquer of course

I agree if the job is done properly should be no problems at all.

My caddy had its standard bumpers painted when I bought it and it actually looks alright but the paint has begun to show a lot of stone chips other than that its fine and seems that it was sprayed properly, I have another bumper in the shed that was sprayed and it's flaking badly which I think is down to either using the wrong primer or none at all.

I cut the bump strips off mine, flattened it, added a few black parts and it looks similar to the touran bumper.

Using plastic primer, 2 pac primer etc works so far. Key is in the prep which is mental boring. Makes a huge difference though

I prefer a good painted original over a Touran one, because they are so much cheaper to buy if it gets stone chipped!
