    Default Respray quote

    Got a quote today for respraying bits of the 348 using mettalic black paint..

    Front bonnet & headlight covers = 900 plus vat

    Rear engine lid (the back bit with the badges) = 300


    Fair or overpriced?

    This is a bit cheaper and just your colour:

    PS Seriously though...isn;t a full front end respray usually around 800 quid? Not had mine done, but I'm sure that's the number I've seen bandied about.

    Have a word with F355GTS as he has favourite shop I think.

    Well overpriced Sy, theres a good garage in Peterborough does classic cars and such and he'll do a bumper for 90 quid. As long as you keep paying these blaoted prices they'll keep taking it off yer

    The 900 did not include the front spoiler.

    Just the bonnet and the two headlights.

    Did they remove these parts from the car or did they leave them on?

    Did'nt ask.

    But assume they would take them off as it's only the bonnets.

    Also got a quote from chipsAway as well. 400 plus VAT for bits and pieces on the car and the rear tailgate (not front bonnet). Reckons it'll take him a day.

    He also said he can do the wheels. I told him it needs specialist work as they are magnesium. He never heard of magnesium wheels.

    Sorry Sy wouldn't trust Chips Away to work on a Ferrari that would be like putting plastic wing sheilds on. CA are not experienced enough, I know because they tried to do my front bumper 3 times and ****ed it right up then I took it to a pro and cost me 400
