: Need A New Trunk! Help Me Out

05-25-2007, 08:58 PM
This is a very dumb story and I feel like an idiot but I need some help. The story is I have an insanley small garage and when I was backing in the other day I hit the support for a shelf on the back wall. The 2x4 made a nice little dent right on the trunk lid (where the lip comes up). I took it in for an estimate and they said that since the trunk is aluminum I have no choice but to get an entire new trunk lid and pay to have the color matched, grand total of $1900.00. Needless to say Im not happy. If anyone in the southern california area has and ideas or assistance please let me know.

Also if I buy a brand new Metallic Black lid from BMW as an OEM part, will the paint match? Any help is appreciated, thanks!

$1900 painted doesn't seem that bad to me. But that's me.
