Paint work in Los Angeles?

Looking to paint the whole entire car something different. I already know what I want to do but not going to say just yet

Can someone direct me to the right place?

Whom would be best for this sort of thing in Los Angeles?

Also was curious to know pricing for something of this nature as well.

Thank you,

Kian

Why not do a wrap? Painting a car a different color will be alot of hassle / depreciate the car alot more / etc. You can get a car wrapped any color you want for like 2kish+.

Fellas, thank you for all the help. But I think I am going to hold off on the idea as I really like the new M5. But thanks for the suggestions, they just might come in use for myself one day.

Do you have any idea how much it costs to repaint a car, well?

Probably way more than you'd want to spend. Might be cheaper to order a new car!

It can easily be $5k-$10k

A&A Collision Centers in Pasadena hands down. They do all of our (and our customers') custom body + paint work. Absolutely top quality work- their attention to detail is incredible. A huge plus is that they are reasonably priced as well

Doubt the OP needs any more suggestions. He changed his mind 4 days after posting .

You can save yourself a lot of money by diassembling the car your self.If you are familiar with cars you can disasemble the front end rear end...doors rockers etc in only 2-3 hours. And if you do the assembly as well your price will be reduced dramatically.I did this and had my car sprayed for 2500.
