What are you getting painted for $450? I painted a car myself and had about $800 in materials alone, back in 2008. Im sure the cost has gone up. I wouldn't expect a decent paint job for less than $2500 - $4000 for an entire car.

Wait. You paid $2,000 for that with 40K miles?
If so, that is one hell of a deal if nothing major was wrong with it..
Also, make sure you post some pics of that paint job when you get her done, my OEM clear coat is starting to peel on mine in spots and I am looking to get a cheap re-spray if possible, I thought about going to Maaco but I've heard their jobs really don't last long.
