    Question Replacement parts advice

    Hi All,

    I was recently on the phone to the parts / servicing dept at Dicksons Vauxhall in Wrexham about ordering a replacement bumper and wing mirror and spoke to a very helpful chap (makes a nice change from my local stealers!). I've been quoted just under £300 for a new SRI pre-facelift bumper and an offside mirror shell i.e casing and fixings, no glass or electrics. Both of these apparently come unpainted and as that particular dealership doesn't have a body shop I'd need to go elsewhere to get them sprayed.

    My question, seeing as I've never needed to order replacement parts before, are firstly, is this a good deal? (Don't want to risk ebay for these) And secondly, what kind of money would you expect to pay to get them sprayed at a - decent - body / repair shop?

    I'm happy fitting them myself but don't fancy making a pigs-ear of the paint job!

    Cheers,

    Hutch.

    You'll probably find a bodyshop that'll paint them for you for £150-200 - more if they're busy with insurance work and don't want your business, less if they're happy to do it cash. Shop around, and offer to leave the parts with them for a week so they can do it in their downtime, that should lower the price considerably.

    Cheers Thomas I'll start making phone calls tomorrow then

    Need to get all this sorted then give it a clay / polish / wax ready for the summer, can't be driving to Bordeaux and back in a dirty Vec now can I? Especially as people will be staring at it trying to figure out why it's not an Opel whilst muttering "Ess Airrr Eeee? Wat iz zat?"
