I am looking into paint shops now because I want to get my car repainted in the springtime.

I only have about $1000 to do the job, but i believe all i will need to do is paint front and rear bumpers, as well as side skirts, eyebrows, spoiler, and m3 mirrors.

also, if they can maybe they can remove a long deep scratch as well, somebody keyed my car pretty bad at work =~( but i can live without that being fixed right away, it's been long enough now that it doesn't upset me AS much but it is still upsetting

You can try European Autobody and talk to Emilio there. Prices may be a tad higher then others but he only works on bimmers and Ferraris and his work is outstanding.

Yes, European Autobody is a really good place, and you don't have to worry about the jobs they do, but just like mpresion said, speak to Emilio.

how much do you think it will cost to do those parts though? Again i dont have a whole lot of money to spend on it, just maybe $1000

i had a few other cars of mine re-painted the same colour for $890 in ajax and they came out stock quality, no overspray and they did 3 coats and 2 coats clear.

but i prefer not to drive out that far.

I think you'll be looking around the 1000 area. Give or take 200-300 but dont quote me on it, cuz i don't know. I had my full hamann kit installed and painted for 1100 plus tax, which was pretty good i thought.

I had my entire (show winning) car done my Unique Auto Collision in Mississauga. Straight_6 also had his car painted there and I can honestly say that they are cheaper than European AutoBody. Their phone # is (905)625-4886..... ask for Frank and go there in person for an accurate quote. They've been in business for over 25years and it's a big reputable place. They are located on Crestlawn Rd (Dixie & Eglington Area). Good luck where ever you decide.

There is a place in Niagara Falls called Advantage that will pretty much do a Full Colour Change For around $1000..... They don't rip people off... and do show quailty painting...

Ok, now you people have my confused. Everytime I talk to somebody about how much it costs to do a color change I get told $4000-6000 USD on average. Why is this so much cheaper in Canada ??

It's not usually that cheap. That is a CRAZY low price to do a full color change. Can you give us some more detail on this place, Gurl Bmw?

I don't have their phone number but I can get it.... It is located in Niagara Falls on I believe off Stanely Ave. It has painted alot of the show cars in the Show Circuit... One for instance Keith Losier ( Kamelon Talon) He is the one that won most of the shows last year?? Ring a bell? Anyways they did his car and the fiberglassing of his dash and stereo... They are awesome.... I am pretty possitive that a colour change is that cheap..... I might be off by a couple of hundred but they are very fair..... They are always busy though..... I am getting my car re-srayed there in 3 weeks.... I am just getting it cleared again though.....
