    Repaint

    Book the S3 in to be fully resprayed on the 15th Nov.

    I managed to get a good deal with i guy i have used before for paint jobs and he's doing the full car for Ł950 cash !! The car is metallic silver so i would say thats a good price.

    How much has everyone else paid for a full paint job? Don't think there will be many? S3 Kev is one but that wasn't a cheap yellow they laid down.
    Was 531bhp 8L S3 thats going to break the 600+ bhp Club then break something else. Lets see what this OD HTAGT3582r can do
    My S3 Twists Drive shafts for fun.

    FOR SALE
    Sparco Torino 2 sport seats
    Adjustable FPR from 1-5 bar, 2 sets of Unused ARP 3/8 2000 rod bolts
    , relentless 200 cell cat pipe, Std AGU Crankshaft. Ported & Reconditioned Cylinder head service.

    I know as i asked if they could paint it a Renault silver that i like, I'm unable to justify the money they wanted for that silver paint job.

    You get what you pay for with paint jobs, IMO I'd stay well clear of anything cash in hand & under 1K, unless the painter is a mate you trust. I've been toying with the idea of getting mine repainted in the stock Imola yellow with Audi, Its a joint Audi/BMW dealers bodyshop (NOT a sub contract "Audi approved" bodyshop) I know a couple of guys who work there & that will help me prep the car so I only need to pay for paint & the mate rates labour to apply it which will keep the costs down.
