I'm thinking about painting my Bimmer, what's that usually run ya?

I want to paint it yellow or something like that. I also want to get some factory 18's for it. It's a 325ic So you know any online sites, or good spots I can get some rims? I want a cheap but good Paint job.I really hate that black strip on the side of the car.

A good paint job costs a lot. Total strip down and paint can easily cost you between 2500 and 4000.

Yes, a cheap job will set you back around $3k. A bad job will set you back about $800. But don't expect anything from that.
Also, what rims? Careful about rubbing issues, be prepared to flare stuff if you're thinking about 18"s.
17's for performance, 18's for looks.


Crap, I think I may be a yuppie...

I second just paint the black accent molding red to match the car, that itself will run you about $500. Why dick up a factory BMW paint job with some cheap Earl Schieb spray work.

I just got lucky and a guy who does awesome paint and body work ran me $1200 to repaint the whole car and touch up some rust I had.

I agree about painting the rest of the car red. Good luck.
