Red as a color absorbs more harmful light energy from the sun than other colors (arguably black absorbs more cause it gets hotter, but red absorbs more of the harmful short wavelength rays, i.e. blue/uv, while I "think" black absorbs more of the long wavelengths while reflecting more of the short or blue). So regardless of the quality of the paint and protection, red takes more of a beating from the sun than other colors.
I minor accident in another car and replaced my bumper fascia myself, the new one came primed. Before installing it, I brought it to a body shop and asked them to paint it by the color code of the vehicle, they charged me only $110. Of course, the bumper NOT being on the vehicle when it was painted, and just asking for a inexpensive paint job, the paint did NOT match perfect, but it was hard to tell a difference. That was 12 years ago, so inflation. But discuss it with the body shop, as much prep work you can do yourself, the less it will cost you to have it repainted. The cheapest obviously will be if they can just lay the bumper over a stand and start srpaying.
