Hi everyone,

Just became the proud owner of a '97 328i coupe in Calypso red (still haven't quite made my mind up about colour!). Mechanically it seems very good, but does have the typical rust issues. Rear arches aren't great and one side has had a bad cover-up job attempted, fronts have a blister or two and then under the rear number plate and under the rubber seal along the bottom boot lip.

I've read that Calypso red can be a difficult colour to match properly so will probably leave it to the professionals to do as I have zero experience. The rust I'll try and tackle myself if I can find the time.

Just wondering if anyone has any quality body shop recommendations in the North Wales area for rust and respraying (or further afield if not)?

Many thanks in advance.


From the drive home (ahem, yes, a new windscreen will be fitted before the next drive!):
