    Phantom S3 front end respray quote

    I was quoted £867 by my local paint shop for full front end respray to repair stone chip damage – this also includes paintwork to peeling lacquer/paint on the rear bumper and a respray of a Mercedes wing mirror (I asked for these extra’s to be included, so not quoted in price).

    The car is in great condition asides from the sustained stone chip damage and has just touched 50k on the clock so I thinks it’s well worth getting the work done.

    -Phantom Black paint
    -Based in South East

    Breakdown

    Parts Sub Total 243.00
    Labour Charge 480.00
    Parts And Labour 723.00
    VAT 144.60
    Quote Total 867.60


    What do people think of that? Fair price? I don't think it's so bad for a proper job TBH.

    Thanks in advance.

    I had a whole 8p3 bumper replaced and a wing and a new headlight and the panels sprayed for that money and it was a proper VAG specialist repairer/sprayer? Using genuine Audi parts direct from the dealer? They did a proper job too...

    It was 3 years ago however? But I can't see it being too different.

    Interesting, they will use all the VAG primers/paints etc. All parts removed inc. headlights if necessary and refitted obviously. Quite a bit of work involved.

    Well to be fair, there is more work involved due to sanding down and preparing surfaces and most of the cost is labour so would make sense to be fair.

    All my bits were all primed and ready i believe so that cut labour times down.

    So all in all sounds roughly right i guess

    This is very true - to be honest I bet if I were to try sell it i'd be knocked down about that much based on current condition so it kind of needs attention at some point. Of course I could probably get a much cheaper quote but the finish would be like comparing apples and oranges.
