1. False - a paint job from a skilled painter with good materials can and will last as long, if not longer than, a factory paint job.
2. False - a paint job from a skilled painter can look as good as, if not better than, a factory paint job. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
3. False - there are many things you can do to your car that are far more expensive than a paint job. An HPF stage 3 S54 engine swap, for example.
