I have a question about wheels...Im thinking about getting a set of 17in S4 wheels for my 01 1.8t....I was wondering how much it usually costs to paint a set of wheels, like a gun metal color.....

Another question I have is about painting bumpers...how much would you pay at most to get a front and rear bumper painted (stock bumpers)?

It'd be better to hae them powdercoated. It's more durable than paint. I've seen from $80-150 a wheel to have them done.

Bumpers, I'd pay around $150-200 each to have done.

I agree 100% Powdercoat is the best way to roll.

Stripping the old paint off is the labor intensive part. If you could strip the old paint off yourself, it could save alot of $$$.

yea, def.. although S4 wheels are a pain to strip the paint. I sold my old S4 wheels to a guy that said even the sandblaster had trouble getting it all off. so if you can find a way to do it on your own, you can definately save some cash.

Its normally about 60$ a wheel to paint or powercoat, If you have the option, def powdercoat
