    More than the car is worth!
    I got quoted like $2,500 and that was the same colour! it was like 3grand something in a colour of my choice. not worth it unless you can find someone to do it cheaper, but you get what you pay for.

    Yeah, resprays are very expensive unless you know someone in the business. Personally, I've put resprays on the "one day when I'm rich" list, along with properly lowered suspension and flashy rims. i.e. never ^^

    If you're willing to do all the labour yourself (i.e. strip the car down and cart the chasis and panels over on a flatbed), you could likely get the job done a lot cheaper (I know there's a company that does 2-pack resprays for around $800 if you do all the hard work. I think you may have to strip the old paint for them too. maybe even prime it. I'm not sure.)... but it is just that. a lot of hard work.
