    hi there. i was just wondering how much i would be looking at for a full respray of my 316 compact? when ive bought this car a joyboy has had it before me and i dont know why but has put bonnet clips through it, bad times. so yea looking to replace the bonet and have the whole thing sprayed as it has also been keyed both sides. so any advise to cost or where to go would be great.
    cheers bell

    easier to get a replacement bonnet, im sure the compact has the same bonnet as the saloon.

    As for the keying, a smart repair place would be able to sort it for a fraction of a respray

    It pays to get quotes from different places but this is one of them you get what you pay for things. i know of people having cheap ones done and you could either get a different colour match or overspray on other parts of your car that makes your paint feel rough. But.....sometimes you can get a decent enough job it just depends. But i normally find its about £100 or so per panel

    It sounds like a blow over, I'm having my whole car sprayed because of some morron scratching it and I have been quoted £3600 from BMW and £2500 from Brin Jones who are in my opinion the best body work specialist in the south west. This is keeping the car in its original colour. I could get the whole car sprayed for £1500 but anything less than that will be taking a gamble as I have seen some really poor quality resprays out there.
