Just wondering if anyone know about how much it would cost to get an E36 M3 completely painted a shiny as dark as you can get JET BLACK... including the side moldings and door handles... cus my car has a few chips up front and a scratch on the rear driver side wheel fender and I think my paint is starting to fade... :cry: what would be a really good paint job price for that... hopefully nothing crazy... thanks.

Earl Scheib is $279, but it could be very nicely accomplished for anywhere between 3-5K. The deeper the look equates to more coats of paint and clear coat, hence an increase in price. Black will be cheaper than red for instrance due to the cost of pigmentation so you may come in lower. I had to have my hood repainted (JB) and it ran about $550.00 for two coats of paint and two of clear coat and fortunately it was out of the dealer's pocket. If you approximate that per body panel you easily exceed 3K.
