This thread makes me depressed and miserable. Everyone's cars look awesome and mine looks like crap! Not the car itself, just the paint. It has so many rock chips and scratches I want to repaint it SOO badly and add an M-bumper and M-par wheels, but it's just too expensive.

It's gonna be a long time before that happens lol. The "cheapest" quote I got for a really good but not quite factory finish repaint was $7000!!! Again that's just for only the repaint. That doesn't include the bumper and wheels...and tires lol.
