Question I want some opinions

I have just recently started changing things about my car, and I was thinking of installing the AIT body kit with the dual intake hood. I'm not sure if I should keep my car this grey color that it came in, or if I should just get a new color. Keep in mind that I want to have black as my complimentary color. Any suggestions?

If you want to change the colour of the entire car, get ready to shell out thousands of dollars just to get a decent paint job.

I had to replace the hood on my truck and the insurance company estimated it would be around $1750 to get a new hood and have it painted. The hood itself only cost $800.

Re: I want some opinions

You can get the entire car wrapped in a different color vinyl. Anywhere from 1000-3000 depending on who does it and the colo vinyl. The stuff I worked with was great. We made a silver Lexus brown, looked really good. We did it for less than a grand too. The Vinyl we used has a 3 year promise. But if the car isn't badly kept it can last a lot longer.
plus its removable.

Re: I want some opinions

So how much would getting a body kit and hood painted run me? I'll just stick with the gray.

It depends on the shop but I would say 1000-2000 for 5 pieces.
