Complete Respray to M3 - reducing value?

Hi guys, will be moving up to my M3 in a few months time

Cant wait, I want to go for AW, but, unfortunatly for some reason, here in the UK, white coloured modern cars, are far more expensive than black,grey etc.

In a ideal world, I know a place not too far, that is a professional car respray shop, for a relatively hefty price tag to respray to AW.

They complete strip the car, spray it, inc door shuts, inner boot so everything and put it back together, so from a finish point of view, it will be sublime.

However, my question is that, will it devalue my car?, as I will have to tell the DVLA about the color change, and it will state it on the V5 registration documents that there was a color change from/to etc.

But presuming the finish is immaculate, do you think it will devalue my car?

Thanks guys.
