Yes very expensive and I've been told it can reduce the value of the car, but not 100% sure on the last point.

If its a factory colour your after than it would probably be better to sell your car and buy another.

I would suggest making your mind up about the colour BEFORE buying an 80k + car...just a thought... :p

+1. why would you spend 80k on a car that you dont like the colour.
keep in mind respraying a car isnt simple, you also have to spray the engine bay (engine has to come out) all the insides of the door, insides of the boot etc.
just buy a black one, its not like there isnt any around.

Get in the ute
you could do 50 flights interstate to test-drive a car, and you'd still be well ahead of what it will cost you for a proper respray :)

IMO a black car with "red" body tags on it will devalue it - if you try sell it people will assume it's been crashed etc.

Ask him what he hates more, flying, or a non-black GTS.

Or this could be his chance for a massive road-trip.
