Getting Bumpers Painted

I am going to be getting my bumpers and grill painted on my 2013 soon. I was quoted $1000 for both bumpers and grill. Is that high?

Also, can i have the backup sensors painted white too? will it affect them at all?

I paid $300 at a local place here for front and rear bumper and the chrome trim around my grille.

EDIT... pics

I did mine yesterday with duplicolor factory match spray paint. It turned out pretty well and only cost me around $30

I thought about doing the same but decided against it because I want a clear cote that will hold up against rock chips. I know they have clear in cans but I just like the pros better IMO. Your truck looks sick tho nice job.

I did all the (dis)assembly. Putting the front back on was a bitch lol. You can tell right in the middle on the front that the top piece wouldn't quite go in right.
