So I got my Euro-Spec M5 bumper this week (sweet!) :biggrin:

I need to paint it. Anybody got recommendations? My hood is also a little chipped, so I'm wondering if I should just paint that too (or even get a lightweight one? haven't seen any excpet fast&furious styles..). Also, do you get a "discount" while painting several parts at once? Or do they charge you for single pieces anyway? I'm thinking if I should save up parts for painting.

Typically it's cheaper to paint a few parts at one time vs. a single piece.

Painting multiple parts is defintely cheaper. You put all the parts in the booth and spray away...

Since this is in DIY, are you looking to try this yourself? Certainly possible with the right equipment :) My car was painted in my driveway!
