    A bit of an unusual one here, I was wanting to re-spray the whole of my BM 318 into a different colour...

    How much would this cost etc and does anyone know of a good place to have it done?

    Many Thanks,

    Baz.

    yeah basically if you can get a respray for £500 its going to be a blowover, so if its a colour change when you open the doors/boot/bonnet you'll be reminded of what colour it used to be lol!

    If you want it done well then around £2000 might be better to look for a car in the colour you want in mint condition-you will find one if you try hard enough and may turn out cheaper too
