Fender roller needed!

Ok guys I need someone who can roll my front fenders only. If you know someone that can do it for a good deal please let me know. I found someone to do it for like 80 bux but I think that's way too much.

No the sedan is not plastic. And if you think that 80 bux is cheap for just 2 fenders money must not be an issue for you considering that from what I've heard longtran does all 4 if I'm not mistaking for 100 bux.

you own a bmw man, stop acting like a cheap-ass and spend the $80 or $100 or watever is that it costs to roll you fenders. i know you've gone to longtran for help w/ ur car b4 so askin quesitons like this is rhetorical because we all know longtran can do anything, especially now since he's continuing to expand his services for us.

ur sig makes u look like "i'm the shit, i drive a bmw" if that's the case open up ur wallet and use it.

$80 is a good deal...most reputable places will charge $100 to $150. I wouldn't worry about the cost of the work since you drive a BMW. I'd worry more about the quality of the work. I'd rather pay someone $20 more to do it right so they don't crack my paint or damage anything.

longtran does all 4 for $100? why not just go to him?

but i thought he quoted me $100 for 2 or is it just me?

but anywayz 80 seems like a gooddeal.. why not just get it done for 80? but i rather pay someone who's more reputatable for more money since you only have to roll fender once if done right

i'll answer this...cuz the guy is cheap. as if $80 wasn't good enough the guy would rather give a hand job to get it done for free.

$80 for the fronts is not a bad price. $100 for a pair is usually the going rate. I'd much rather pay Long $100 and be confident that you're getting it done right in one shot.

Oh great comment... asshole. So looking for a good deal means I'm automaticly looking to jerk someone off right? Idk how much it costs to roll fenders so I wanted to see what other prices are out there. If I could find a better deal so be it.

Not bashing you, but I like a good deal like anyone. There are times you do NOT want skimp, and this one of those time. Plus, time is money. It's a service, so pay-da-man. I paid $80 to have my fender rolled, and at the time I did not know that was a cheap price.
