    Front bumper respray, what would you expect to pay.

    Hi,

    My 2005 A3 (pearlescent black) has a pretty chipped front bumper, and front edge of the bonnet. What would you expect to pay for them to repaint the whole bumper and blend it into the bonnet.

    Secondly, would you expect them to remove the headlights and trim, or just mask it off.

    thanks.

    they will remove the bumper and grills and mask off for speaying the bonnet, usual price is between 15-200 per panel for a decent job, a blend would look awful get both done, keep in mind the paint will be softer for a little while too!

    Don't you lose the 12yr paint warranty if you don't paint it at Audi?

    its not a paint warranty its a corrosion warranty, and yes and no ive still had stuff approved on painted panels if you can proove that the corrosion has come from underneath or behind

    tbh you don't need it blending into the bonnet if your bonnet is ok, as I think you'll find your plastics (bumpers) are off anyway
