agree, i've had paint work done on my car at standard prices and still got a shitty job, Joe@MAC can attest to how poor the paint job on my car was from a previous shop that was recommended by forum members (they arent a sponsor here).

So it isn't always shops that have low prices, even shops with standard prices do shitty work.

on another note, there's people who go to shops for better "deals," expect a top notch job which obviously isn't expectable. So I don't understand why half these guys complain when they paid peanuts for a paintjob.

I know what im paying for, and what I can afford. Its obvious from which shop dedicates more revenue towards their cars rather than the owners pocket as well.

Depending on the budget of some members, some can't afford the higher end ones due to their jobs or parents funding, etc...which is common case on the forums the past few years nonetheless; and i go to the shop i've been loyal to, and can depend on if anything ever happens, + my eyes don't gorge out of my head when i see the bill.

Im ecstatic however with the latest project finished on my car and hopefully will go back (only for mods) to get more done. Just the fanatics that don't spend any money, shouldn't be making any complaints. Its predictable.
