I would agree but synthetic paints tend to give a better finish with less rubbing needed afterwards. Regardless of what type of paint you use ensuring your a not going to get a silicon reaction can be difficult. Most black bumpers have probaly been treated with a silicon based treatment sometime in their life - even from the factory as silicon is manily used a a releasing agent when they are plastic injected. Many of the modern paints are water based to reduce their toxicity. I would rather see a car with its original black/grey bumpers looking clean than a poxy looking respray.

Of course everyone has a different opinion on what makes a good finish
