Definitely disclose the repainted bumper, with detailed description of what happened and how it was repaired. People appreciate honesty, and so does Karma.
Definitely replace the missing badges. Nothing says "accidented and/or generally abused spoiled brat car" more than missing emblems.
Normally I'd say that trading a two-year-old car is the dumbest thing anyone can do. But with used-car hysteria running at all-time highs, and the Elantra at the top of its game, now is a better time than ever. Depending on your specific city, I'll bet you can recover 65-80% of your purchase cost vs. the usual 50% after two years of ownership.
Let us know how you make out,
