    Hi again chaps, sorry to be cluttering the board a lot currently
    I saw a really nice 840 ci Sport yesterday which i genuinely like, but on the back bumper below boot (on the curved upwards-facing bit, below number plate) there are two small areas where the paint has flaked off, though the bumper itself is fine and no crash damage at all. Each flaked off bit is about the size of a very small childs hand, so its definitely a respray job.
    Question: Before i nip and get a quote does anyone have an idea roughly how much a (good quality) whole bumper respray might cost?
    2nd question, how far round / how much of the car would the paintshop expect to paint?
    3rd, is the respray likely to mean 'problem solved' or is there a good chance it would start flaking again in that location?

    Thanks in advance for any replies..

    I do have one or two other queries but thought it best to keep different queries on separate threads.

    I would also ask, is there an idiot proof way of telling whether a car has had a respray? Original colour was same as current colour. In any case, does it affect value or matter much if a car has had a respray? thanks

    I'm getting nose and bonnet sprayed for £500 cash if that helps. Bumper must be less.
    Next time you post I suggest you use the correct format 1999 E31 840 or It may get removed.
