I'm considering my 325i repainted. For about $800, MAACO offers American OEM paints and minor body repairs. I'm thinking either silver or black. My top choice to stand out is Avus Blue, but it would be $1,800 (as import OEM color)! The dealer estimate is >$1,200 without body repairs. I may have to re-consider the color.
Can you show me pics of any Avus Blue Bimmer? (Any blue Bimmer is welcome.) I never saw one in person (in past year), that's why.
Don't do Macco. My friend had a bright green done, spent about $800 on a civic and they got paint on windows, on black trim under the hood, on the windshield wipers, all over the muffler, in the wheel wells, on the tires, and god knows who else. House of Kolor is a great idea. They may be a little more expensive, but well worth it. They have some sick colors. Read any car magazine. Many featured cars in Cali have gotten paint done at House of Kolor.
