e46 Front bumper/hood respray and car polish



With spring just around the corner, I need to figure out where I should take my car to get a little painted and detailed.

The front hood has a small dent between the grilles that I need fixed and there are so many stone chips that both the front bumper and hood need a respray. So I would like the paint matched and then the whole car buffed/polished (not sure it's ever been done) to get rid of the millions of swirls.

Can anyone recommend a top quality place to do this?
Rough cost?
In addition, I have a few small rock-chip dents here and there that I would like pulled out at the same time.

Thanks for the help guys. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the cruise in May. I've been getting that car in tip top condition for it! ... eg. BMW Performance intake arriving tomorrow.

Repaint hood + little dent fixed is around $350-450
Repaint the bumper is right around $550
Full car detail is right around $350

It can be done for less but quality will be compromised.

Try autopia performance, European Autobody, Don Valley Auto Collision,Phoenix Autobody.

Good luck.

I swear this thread comes up on a weekly basis, lol.

Look no further than Rich (Evil_M3 on this board) at Luxury Autobody. Impossible to beat unless you go to European Autobody, even then the work will be like 99% similar.

Thanks Anuk, I'll try European first and see what they say. If I'm already spending $1500, I might as well spend $100 extra and not sacrifice quality. Hahaha, you should have just said the work will be the same. Now I'm thinking, where'd that 1 percent go?!
