    How much would it cost to get the colour of a car changed?
    Would it be worth it or not?

    totaly depends on what car you have mate :) and what kind of job you want.. if its a total strip and spray it can be costly.... but i aint got a clue about prices in Australia... sorry :)

    Prices from the UK are fine. It will just give me a rough estimation. The car is a BMW 318I but its red and im not a big fan of red :o
    I havnt got the car yet because im still enquiring about it but i if i do deceide to get it i might want to change the colour to something more darker like a darkish blue or a black.

    Thanks for your quick reply

    Will likely cost you a couple of thousand to do properly I'd imagine. It will be cheaper to simply sell the car and buy a colour you like.

    Certainly not worth the hassle on a 318i, particularly as it would be easy enough to find a black one.

    Pretty much pointless to be honest, especially when the car is just a 318I, it'll cost thousands for a decent job. Much cheaper to just sell and buy the same car in the colour you want :)
