Default Thoughts on paint blend vs full bumper removal + repaint?

So I just picked up this RS. Loving everything about the car except the ugly black stripe that the previous owner painted on the bumper
I was thinking of masking everything except the stripe then sanding it down, spray primer, spray base coat, and clear coat. However, I feel like this method might leave a noticeable mismatched white stripe. Any recommendations? Thanks

I would just do the entire bumper so you wouldn't have to worry about any mismatch. If you are willing to do all that why not just take the extra step to do it all?
