I am curious as to what the going rate for a New Paint Job would be there in the states. I am in Japan and they want and ungodly amount of money to paint my car. Im just curious as to how much different it is here than there. Lets put it this way, I went to 2 different shops, one shop said it would cost 200,000yen which, at the current exchange rate, is $1755.00. The other shop quoted me at 150,000yen which is $1315.00. Are these totally outrageous prices or what?? Now these shops are professional shops, so maybe thats the reason for the price, I dont know. Just curious as to what it costs there to get a nice paint job for your car...
