    Had a full front end paint including doors on the S3 this week, picked it up today and its looking mint, finally got merlin purple in all its glory i.e no stone chipped front end :)

    No decent pics at the min so worst 'new paint' thread ever lol

    Will get some tomorrow if its sunny :)

    Got done at my mates work for a good price, plus he did the boot handle for me in his lunch :)

    Special order colour, think there are a few knocking around but not many :)

    £520 for full front end inc doors, decent price I think especially as it was quite a state! Looks like new now!

    Really smartens up the car when the stone chips are gone. I had my front bumper sprayed and the car looked so much tidier but didnt last long till got full of stone chips again. Thats a good price too.
