Re: if you thought alfa red was expensive.......
I don't think any modern Alfa could really justify having £8000 spent just to have it in a different colour. I can see where the money goes so it is justifiable in those terms, but even the most expensive new Alfa (8C excepted) is around the early £30,000 mark so an extra 25% for a paintjob seems excessive.
Doubtful that a bodyshop would do a job to the same standard for much less; a bare metal respray is just that, paint stripped, windows out, engine out, rubber seals taken off etc... all in all a huge amount of work to be done properly.
