Oh and mentioned above, stay away from Maaco. We used this place on Lemay in the melhville area when we had some damage to the fender on our Passat. I cant remember the name off the top of my head, but Dean Team VW uses them, and they did an amazing job!
I actually am in the Mehlville area. If you remember the name of that Autobody let me know.

I went to a large autobody shop thinking it should be around $500 for quality work but it came out to be over $1000!!!! I volunteered to remove the trim myself and it would only save me $150, so it is like $850 just for the trim? This sounds way to high, did anyone have their trim painted and how much did it cost you?

FYI - I ordered the control arms from bimmerworld + powerflex bushings. They are on back order but will be a few weeks before they are shipped. I'll hit you up when I get them.

DIY - I did my share of painting when I painted my interior trim. I learned a lot from it too. I'm sure there is a duplicolor paint that closely matches your car color...

$1000+ is way too much for trim...

Me too. My front right wheel seems to lock up a lot lately, ABS?

Sounds Great!!! I'll concentrate on my wheels first. I am probably going to get 19" wheels. I wonder how they will look on my car, since I have the sport suspension would it look decent enough where I don't have to drop it?

Sticking Caliper? Does it make any noises when you drive or brake?
