ranges from 299 up to 10 grand. just depend on the quality you want, you wanna be cheap and want you car to look like crap, macco is the way to go, you want a good paint job, go somewhere that is reputable in your area, someone that does custom paint jobs. while your doin that get some flares, and nsx vents.

BTW, if you get the NSX vents, the paint job and the vents might cost you all of the 4K. hopefully you have a body kit to go with the vent, because then that would look ghey. grin

No, I don't have a body kit. All the body kits I've seen so far look like cheap plastic, so that's why I was planning to get a new paint job, rims, and tinted windows. I don't know sht about cars so please correct me if I'm making a retared out of myself.

well obviously you would have to have a body kit to make it look right. I didnt know if you had one, since you dont then they are right , get a kit first, then paint it, it you have money left over get rims

it would be nice if you put on a body kit after ur paint job is done after that if you still have some money left you might consider to og for a nice rim to match up ur kit after that IF you still have money left you can go for a wing.
