    Respray, phantom or daytona

    Hello!

    Due to a bump over xmas (I was parked, not my fault!) and some rust issues going on, im gonna get a respray. Currently i'm phantom black, but considering daytona.

    Question is, for a full respray, would the cost be the same or is it cheaper to go phantom on phantom?

    same colour would be easier, else you have to do door shuts, engine bay etc

    black as a base isnt too bad as you can leave the engine bay alone. considering a colour change myself as phantom black does F all for an S3.

    Thinking white or imola yellow.
