How much to get a new painting?

Hello, I own a X5 just wondering how much would it cost to get a new color?

I bought a 2009 used x5, and the color was not great but the deal was good.

I hear someone said that getting a new painting would cost 3k?

Is that true?

$3k for a X5? Wow that's like half what a reusable body shop would charge.

Expect closer to $6k-$8k for a proper BMW quality job, unless you want to deal with rusting and peeling paint.

For 3k they might be plasti dipping the x5, I was recently quoted $2900 to re-spray front end and rear bumper.

I think I paid around $3000 twenty years ago for a repaint using the same colour.
