    You can do it yourself for the cost of a few tins of aerosol and a weekend in the shed, otherwise I'd expect £50 upwards depending on what finish you want and if you do the prep yourself etc etc

    around the 50-60 quid mark sounds right, depending on the colour match and whether its two pack paint or not

    If it helps a pretty much perfect colour match is, BMW Japan Red colour code 438. You should be able to get this mixed at most paint spots or bodyshops.

    Cheers, but would that account for slight colour fade? not sure but the colour might have faded over the years.

    I work at a BMW garage and a friend there die it as a favour. But the piant cost me £20, but I would of thought a body shop would charge around 60 quid. Maybe cuddled if you prep it.

    I reckon most paint shops will give you a cuddle if you do your own body prep Laughing
