I've been in the auto biz a very long time. Bmw paint job properly done will cost you 3-5k...and any buddy of yours who does paint and gives you a deal will prob charge you half that... To properly paint a bmw you need to REMOVE things like glass, trim, and if you decide to go the length. panels. This is how I know a bmw should be painted. Anything else is a shame and ruins the worth of the car...it's called a butch job. I've seen my share of "economy friendly" better use Macco......I've had people tell me they paid 3 grand for a paint job I ended up polishing out orange peel. Wet sanded and polished enough "sweet deal" jobs to know...speaking from experience of course.
