    Just want to get a feel for what people are paying to have the following parts sprayed, or sprayed and fitted:

    Front bumper
    Rear bumper
    Spoiler

    I've just been quoted £325 to have all three sprayed and fitted.

    Sounds ok to me. Not the cheapest, but these guys are a reputable company who have been around locally for years, so the work SHOULD be spot on.

    So, thoughts.... Prices...???

    :thumbsup:

    sounds like a very good price. Usually around £150 to have a bumper sprayed here

    That sounds pretty good. I paid about £170 (cash!) to have my front bumper sprayed and fitted.

    In my view it's definitely worth going to a place with a good reputation. If the job is cheap but doesn't live up to your expectations you'll kick yourself everytime you look at your car!

    Cheers guys, think I'll book it in. They actually wanted more... £500 (£200 per bumper and £100 for the spoiler), but they didn't look too busy and the guy said he'd do it for £325 cash.
    Just been to another body shop and they want £400.

    Polish guy round the corner wants £250.

    Reckon I'll go with the middle quote.

    Thats a good price, take it as the £500 is more near the mark tbh.

    Its a shame though... the bumpers I bought are already the same colour as my car, but they've got just a few too many scratches on them for my liking.
