Hey,

I know the painting of M-tech moldings have been talked about numerous times - but here's my questions:

1. Who has done it.. and how much did it cost you? I'm thinking of painting OEM M3 bumper, M-tech moldings, and door handles.

2. What places will do a good job and not ding doors (sorry DJContra) while painting the stuff? I was talking to European Autobody - but i keep getting this annoying Andrew guy who seems to be a ripoff artist.

3. Any other tips?!

Thanks

DO NOT TALK TO ANDREW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ONLY talk to Emillio (Owner) or Manuel (His son). Manuel was a nice guy and helped me VERY well.

When my car was there being fully repainted I asked them to watersand and paint the M mouldings all around. It cost me $400 from European Autobody.

I highly recomend that you go to them though. A++ work.

400$ all around, BimBap, call me, way way cheaper then that for sand blasting, priming, factory colour and clear coats.
Only BimBap guys, I can't provide this service to everyone.

That's too funny.

Well if you want A+++ Quality work done then I suggest European Autobody.

If you guys want, I could hook any maxbimmer members with the shop that my dad's dealership(My family owns a dealership) deals with. You all seen my car's paintjob. Its the same guy that did my car. at a probably a discounted price.

I love the look of colour-coded stuff, I did mine myself 'cos I have a spray gun and compressor. I did the beadings all round, handles and side indicators.

Nice job!!! BMWs should roll out of the factory with matching trims and mouldings, IMO.

Bump for Gizmo... mouldings can be easily in your own garage.
