I'll just get my DIY dust free workshop, compressor, spraying equipment and air-fed mask then.... :D

I have an element of 'M-styling' on my car, If that's a good enough reason for the manufacturers to adorn a 320 with the M badge, then its certainly a good enough reason for me..

..... I liked the detail on the process... and the option of DIY on those small shopping mall dings... Considering the ease of removing individual panels from the Z3, it becomes quite manageable to do these repairs in a fairly small "dust free" area which could as easily be something which could be erected much like a camping tent just for the purpose. small electric compressor and a low pressure spray gun would easily handle the repair relatively inexpensively :wink:

I completely resprayed my Goldwing a few years back with (wait for it....) a rattle can. You can get a better result than factory, but it's practice and experience that gets the end result.
