Jesse,
The paint job was $2,500 BUT that included a fair abount of body work to remove rust damage, new windshield and hatch glass seals, and installing the ground effects kit. They tore the car completely apart, painted it, and then reassembled it. What the pictures don't show is that there is a 1/4 pinstripe running down both sides of the center white stripe. Looks super up close.
My car has a catalytic converter that acts like a resonator so the turbo tips are just on the border of being too loud. Without a resonator they definitely would be. It gets a bit boomy inside the car at about 2,500 RPM but it sure sounds sweet when I open it up!!!
