Hey I have an silver 02 m that I just bought with 65k and its a little scratched up. I was wondering how much a good full paint job could cost or if its even worth it? Thanks!

You're joking, right?

If not, plan on about 4 to 5k.

If the scrathes aren't that bad and are localized (ie not all over the car) then plan on at least $1k. Otherwise, as ScottZHP said, $5k for a good paint job.

NICE ///M! Of course it is worth painting, it's an ///M! But you might want to try a clay bar and a weekend of scrubbing and rubbing. Lots of times surface scratches can be buffed out.

But you may want to save some $$ for the $14.95 a qt (you'l need 8 of em) oil you have to buy, and those $1200 brakes (just the parts mind you) that make ///M's so darned expesnive to drive!

It's an ///M not m.

In other news it cost considerably more to buy the ///M badge than other badges on JLeviSW.com. It seems to need less raw materiel to make though. Supply and demand?

I wanted to buy one, but I feared retaliation from the folks over on fanatics. Maybe I'll just glue it to my floor mat :dunno:

I was going to buy one but decided against it at the last moment before placing my order. I feared some moron wouldn't realize that the E46 M3 never came as a sedan and would think I'm serious.
