    Ha I wish, put it this way I paid as much for the repaint as I did for the car in the first place... But you pay for what you get at the end of the day, some SERIOUS time was put into this, all the doors, gate, bonnet ect came off for paint and where painted off, so all the shuts have been donw so anywhere you see AVUS BLUE is new.

    The paint most likey came to around £400 lol if not more.

    \Yeah it is the original colour for the early M3 3.0ltr, the later colour is that nasty pale blue estriel or however you spell it, lol This is my favorite colour by along way.

    I'm really fussy about blue, has to be jsut right.
