Lightbulb Paint and exterior restoration

I have a '95 M3 (Alpine White III) and I'm thinking about getting a paint job done and a weather stripping restoration (all the window plastic parts are in bad condition).

I was just wondering if anyone here knows how much it's the co$t for a job like that, and if any of you guys think it is convinient or not.

It has 100,000 miles on it, and the interior is in very good condition, so I think is worth doing it.

...What do you think?

Well, I think I should search more aruond here, I've done 2 estimates and one of them was $4000 (euro only paint shop) and $3700(aprox.) for a custom shop here by my house...

I'm gonna keep looking around because I think it can be lower somewhere else (Even though that depends on the state we are too) But, I'm pretty sure that if you got a good job for that price, for sure I can get lower than $3700 for my job...
