repaint
when i bought my '01 GTS, i was just looking for a good price...i like the red and all, but i really wanted blue or black. i was just curious as to how much it might cost to get it completely repainted. maybe just blue or black...maybe the chameleon paint between the blue AND black (i think it would look pretty sweet). i know the chameleon is more expensive, but i have been looking around and cant find how much any kind of repaint would cost. does anyone know either way, straight or chameleon, how much it would cost? thanks

for color changing paint you're looking at about 1500 just for the gallon of paint you'll need, factor in labor and it's probably going to run you anywhere from 2500-3200 depending on the shop.

Don't go with the color changing paint. that stuff is VERY expensive. it's not how they layered it, but the actual paint itself. has a prismatic effect.

the mixed paint color is called carbon blue, it's pretty tight. at first when i got my car i thought it was black but then i noticed it had the speckle effect, so now im' liking the color. wanna trade cars? i wanted a red car but got stuck with the carbon blue!!
