KHOALTY | Painted Mtechnik II Bumpers

We will start offering painting services shipped to customers. Many customers always ask us if we can locate body shops to paint the bumper but unfortunately we only and trust our local shops as we deal with them on a daily basis. This can be any color you want.

This will be open just for 10 people for now. Please email us at sales@khoalty.com to get on the list and prepay. Once the 10 has been filled up, we will send them out to the shop and keep everyone updated on the situation.

Painting will be offered at 400 for the bumper. The bumpers will be baked and heated to take any oils in the bumper, after that primered and painted. All of the paint and prep work are all done by certified BMW folks. We are using there body shop so it better be legit.

So the cost will be as follows.
175 for the bumper, includes fogs, fog covers, tow cover and center grill. On sedans it will include the rubber strips.
400 for paint
100 for freight shipping within the CONUS. (delivered to your door, why pay for shipping if you have to drive and pick it up?)

Thanks

I believe you are paying for the convenience of having a painted bumper delivered directly to your door.

Yeah we all know that taco bell can do it for cheap.

Average price for quality paint on such body panel is 400-550

The 400 is for the paint, the 100 is for the doorstep.

+1 I paid $450 for a baked re-spray of my pitted but otherwise undamaged stock M-Tech 2. I also got quotes of $300 for a crap job.

FWIW BMW body shops aren't always the greatest... but if you trust them I guess it's okay. What line of paint do they use?

This is true. Prices (excluding paint) are the same as their website.

Any questions feel free to email us! Yes the price is higher than your low end 'budget' paint job, but we've been let down numerous times by the cheap guys and have since started dealing with professional, actual professional, shops instead, which reflects in the pricing here and on other painted items on our site!

Will you offer this service for rear bumpers? Mine is a ZHP coupe with PDC. I was quoted $600 for a respray of my existing bumper (which is scuffed and pitted).
