Just got my 740 T repainted in BMW Pyrite Brown Metallic in January. Not a top notch paint job but I removed pretty much everything from the car before taking it to the paint shop so it's 8/10 or so.

Thanks! It was a great deal considering he did all the door jambs. It was local guy with a paint shop. There's a run by the driver's key slot that can be sanded out, some door dings that he didn't see, and worst of all the line where the clearcoat was peeling on the roof is still visible as he didn't smooth it out enough before painting. He said he'd sort it out this summer when he was in his new shop. It's really transformed the car from something I like driving to something I actually like looking at.

Paint job still looks great all things considered.

I keep meaning to pick up a set of hubcaps but $100 is a bit steep since I eventually want to find some really clean dracos to put maxsport rally tires on.

Not a big fan of the color(looks awesome though) but congratulations on being in the 1% of tbers that actually has their car repainted. Sounds like you found an honest paint guy. I've had lots of Volvo's painted and when is something isn't right with the finish, I ask to have it fixed and the painter does it without question. What you did is the best method on saving money on a paint job. Take it in stripped of bumpers, tail lights, head lights, door handles, door locks, all trim moulding, remove any pin striping(this will show up in paint, ask me how I know). By doing this, you will get a real good finish that you can be proud of.
