    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 £950 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.

    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.
