your kit should cost more to paint and install than an RS kit since it is a full bumper replacement. Pricing fluctuates in your location also

why don't you guys stop asking people on this board and start calling around bodyshops asking them yourselves?

Also you should install your kit yourselves...it is not very difficult.

Call a body shop. It depends on how the kit fits. If it requires LOTS of fitting, it can cost over $1k to get the kit installed and painted. If it fits good, and you want to use cheap paint, you could probably get it done for $200.

Good paint is expensive. I wouldn't be surprised to see Glasurit or Spies Hecker cost over $400 just for the paint.

Good body shops that have good body men, painters, and equipment aren't cheap!

Even if you install the kit, I would suggest that you have the parts painted off the car. It's hard to get into all the little crevices while the bumpers are on the car. Not to mention that it would look cleaner if the entire bumper is painted (back and front).

but don't auto repair shops usually do poorer quality work than a shop that deals with us aftermarket folks?
