    I work at an Audi bodyshop and we'd charge about £150+vat, so depending on who you get to do it (if you want any comeback etc) thats a rough idea

    depends who does it. I know a guy who will do a full respray for £200 and is actually a good job! £100 would be a fair price in my mind

    Thanks for all the replies! So between 100 - 150 is about right then!

    Cheers everyone!!

    he will do a blow over...but if you strip the car down, no windows etc he will spray to wherever you tell him, but if you don't remove something he will just tape it. so we normally take shells to him and he will do the inside too! £200 includes for a base colour in acrylic. He will do 2 pac too but I have to buy the paint. He does ALL of the local taxis, vans etc. It is a very good job for the money, but not quite the same as a £2000 job! obviously. but good for older cars. He has a long waiting list too!

    Any suggestions in the North West? I seem to have been quoted £250 for either bumper and could really do with having both done :(

    Think I will be protecting the front bumper this year, sick of the stone chips and the paint protection really has come on leaps and bounds.

    £80 sounds absolutely bang on. none of this blending the whole side etc to contend with.
