Hi all,

My m3 evo3 needs the scuttle sorted as theres a reasonable sized rusty gole in it.  I think it could also do with a good full respray.

Any ideas of how much this will cost ?

cheers

For the scuttle , read the link , it was from a M3 buying guide with info from Munich Legends.
As for the cost of a respray, well thats a bit of a ' how longs a bit of string ' type question . To do a Sport Evo justice i would say somewhere close to 2K

Respray wise, so much depends on where you go. Much is in the preparation and an awful lot comes down to what you are going to be doing with the car. I had a bottom half respray, including all the dents and dings, refitting/realigning of the bonnet all for £750. Now the guy freely admist that he undercharged me but the paint job is excellent. I can't see any flaws in it at all, neither have most who have seen it. Because I track my car quite a bit, this is a kind of reasonable price. If it gets scratched or a bit scruffy from stone chips I am not going to be crying about it, I just get it repainted again.

I am sure you could pay twice what I paid, but I suspect most of that will be spent in the preparation rather than the application of the paint.

Personally, I would decide what you are going to be doing with the car, and let that guide you on how much you want to spend on a respray.
