If you got the money then go ahead I'd say! I was quoted nearly £1k 5 years ago to fully respray a Rover 214 :eek:

Isn't Arden Blue the VXR colour though?

Hi there, do you mean this colour? Arden Blue (12U)






A cheaper option for you would be to get the car vinyl wrapped, plus it will normally take less than a day to convert. You also have the option to change it back if you wish.

Just a thought,

Paul has a good idea there regarding the vinyl wrapping but this is not a permanent deal as the vinyl is only supposed to last a few years I believe!

You do get different 'qualities' 5-7 years being the normal strength used.

Bearing in mind that the car is 13 years old, that should be sufficient to outlive the car.

yeah its the vxr blue. really like the colour. my mates dad owns his own spray painting garage and said he would do a full re-spray for £450 plus paint. so looking about £600. which is quite good a thought. i have seen his work and know its good, didnt want to go right cheap because the cheaper you go the worse off the paint job is. he would usually take £1000 without paint. so hopefully by the end of this year it will be a different colour.
