Paint & Bodywork Needed in Denver

I,m looking for someone to paint my hood and oem bumper e90 3 series 4 dr. 2006 330i. Scalp shops need not apply. the quotes i have received are redickulous here compared to So. Cal. for instance my stock pre lci oem bumper/ 450.00 to 720.00, thats right 720.00 Hood /600.00 - 1100.00 !!!!!! What world are these people living in. a reasonable pricing should be 300.00 - 400.00 on both the bumper and hood. Rocky Mountain High Pricing is fitting. Im all ears

6-800 bucks is really cheap. Unless you are looking for shit that is just going to peel off in 2 years, why are you complaining? A full paint job on one of my Supras cost over 40k. Stop complaining and do it right the first time. Trust me man, its worth it to pay someone to do it right, rather than pay cheap because thats the exact quality that you will end up with.

They way you said it sounded like you were only willing to pay $300-400 for both the hood and bumper.

I got my front lip fixed and painted for $100 through a friend. Came out really nice...

Ya you are probably right about that. The bumper I have now has the pass. side bottom corner scuffed, really not that bad. I could certainly post some pictures if you think someone here in town might be able to help me. the places that i took it to didnt want to just repair that small area. they only wanted to to a full strip and paint. Mine only needs cosmetic work. the other option i was seriously considering was buying a urethane M3 replacement from Cal. $418 fr. bumper , $400 painted out there, and $125 to have it shipped from JGMods.com. mine is very workable. I also bought a couple of weeks ago a Hamann cf lower lip for my oem bumper. $250 and some change from **********s. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I just joined this forum a week ago, and hav,nt had time to edit my profile and upload pictures of my car. I,ve only owned this car since last November. I never owned any kind of sports car until I bought this one from an individual in Los Angeles. I could not find a used Black 2006 330i 6 speed manual with low miles here in Denver. all of the used ones here were one to three thousand more than Califonia and Texas. I Love this car to death!

I would personally stay away from both Maaco and Abra auto body. Bad experiences with both. I'm sure there are plenty of other talented body shops in the area.

Most definitely, both of those will skin you alive. I really dont want to part with $1100 skins just to get that M3 front end look, but I may have to eventually. I dont know why everyone loves the Mtech (Msport) bumper. I was not impressed at all. If I go, I go M3 all the way even thou it doesnt give you as many lower lip options.
