In Reply to: Estimates to repaint front end (Imola) posted by Mabilis on June 08, 1999 at 13:21:32:
Just from what I've read you may want to consider the fading factor of Mabilis. If the paint's been attacked by the evil sun demons and has faded, even the slightest, then a newly painted brilliant looking hood wouldn't fit. Also, the original water based paints seem to be outdone by the repaint stuff; I don't know about the chipping. Catch ya later
: Hey Guys,
: I eventually will have to get the front end of the car repainted because of chip damage (maybe in a year or so). Has anyone out there done this and if so, what estimates were you given... Mabilis is Imola Red. I also heard/read that repaints use a different paint than the original water based paint used by BMW and is harded to chip. Do you find this true...
: Any information will be greatly appreciated so I can budget for this...
