You should try posting the regional forums or call a couple of local shops to get quotes.

ask your local body shop about paint. the kit from tischer with shipping should be close to 1300. my guess including paint should be close to 2 at most.

Install is easy if you know how to use basic hand tools.

hmm the quote i got around here is $1100 for paint and installation...
is it too expensive???

i am not too confident about installing it myself...
i am afraid i might break something or install it incorrectly...

install is really easy. the rear bumper is a bit tricky but you'll get it. i figured out how to do a whole mtech install without instructions. if i can do it, you can too. it'll save you a bunch of money.

Metallic Paint is another factor to the expense

Why not ask A&L Autobody? They did work on several members' cars already.
