    Painting Bumpers and Side Skirts

    Does anyone have a rough idea of what is a decent quote for having the bumpers and side skirts of a 2011 (61 facelift) re-sprayed? I am due to have all of my metal bodywork panels re-sprayed under warranty, but not the plastic bumpers, as they're not covered. I am worried about the new paint...

Since there are also other scratches around the car...

    Painting diamond cut slloys

    A titled, (well almost except from spelling of alloys ) can this be easily done. Not sure if I like the polished metal look of the diamond cut face wheels. I am considering getting a used set of 19 inch 7 spoke amg alloys and having them refurbished in a bright silver metallic finish. Thoughts...!
