Cost to repaint whole car?

I was wondering if anyone could give a price range for having the entire car repainted in a custom colour? (From a good/reputable shop of course) Thanks!

Im not a paint shop owner but your probably looking at around $6,000.00 just to shoot it. Custom colors can make that climb quickly. That is based off of experience with my local body shops. There are some out there that will do it cheaper but you have to get a good feel for a shop. Just because they have a hundred thousand dollar paint booth doesn't mean they can paint.

Just my .02

It would depend on your local shops and the competition. I have gotten quotes from 3 reputable places where I live. One said $7000, one said $8000, and one said $9000. This included engine bay, jams, trunk lid, etc and will be a complete color change.

Really depends on your budget, I know Jr's House of Color charges around $100k.

I'm gonna guess that you're not gonna go this route, but it's still gonna cost ya. Just make sure you get it done at a reputable shop, if you need to pay more to get it done right, it's worth it.

Depends. By custom do you mean an OEM 3-stage metallic paint or a on-of-a-kind only you will have it?

Funny, I just had my 2011 quoted to remove the rally stripes and paint new stripes up the nose-hood-roof-trunk. Cost $7800.

Wow, that sounds like a lot! I was quoted for hood, trunk, spoiler at 2,000.

You might consider a wrap.

It may seem iffy to someone who is quoted from a shop they have never dealt with before. However, these 3 shops have had numerous amazing cars come out of their shop. Here are the sites if you wish to check them out if you are around the SC area.

I was thinking along the lines of one of a kind, custom mix, maybe something between metallic black, CGM, and with some pearl in there.

How much does a whole car wrap usually cost?

3k.

But you can't wax or polish vinyl. If something happens to it.. that's that.
