    Worth getting a respray?

    Do you think its worth getting a re-spray? I have a Red mk4 and itís faded quite a bit L beyond repair really, canít be buffed, or polished out. Im on 75K now just wondering if it is worth a re-spray. I have had quotes between 800 and 1400 for a same colour respray, that sound about rite?

    I guess it depends how long you plan on keeping it for.

    You pay for what you get when you get a re-spray. £800 sounds rather cheap, but probably wont do a decent job. However I don't really know but that is usually the case.

    same color spray in a solid color you would be looking around the £800 mark for a straight forward job.

    Are you sure it can not be mopped ect.

    Take it to a detailer first. If not then it may be worth spraying

    it makes me laugh when people get quoted those sort of figures! the going rate around here is no where near that amount, and 90% of places around here use ovens etc.
