$400 on the low end and up to $600 on jacked up black paint. This is a quote on a 3 series. A 1 or 5 will adjust the price according to size.

This white 3 series was in good shape and took me 9 hours on this job including breaks. On hammered paint it will be a two day job.

Thanks buddy. I can travel for small work but big jobs like this I need it here in my garage as I need the lighting and controlled environment as well as my product collection without fear of forgetting something.

Awesome work, Mike! I'm thinking about getting a full detail done here shortly on my 3.... Just need to throw on the rear window spoiler for you to include in the detailing.

That would be the best. Get all or most of your exterior mods done and then get with me for the work. What color car?

SW should be able to do it

The foreman at BMW said they don't do it for liability reasons but its a DIY type of thing

Yep, straight forward. If you can turn a wrench, you can swap the bumper. To make it easier, it's better to take apart the passenger fender so you can see better to get the bumper over air ducts if you're doing the install alone.
