What about a body shop? My friend's white RS got his mags done at a body shop coated gold. Looks pretty good and it lasted him nearly a year and still not a single scratch or chip.

So going to bodyshop is the same then? Is just painting it the same as powdercoating or what?

And I'm thinking of doing it cause I want something different BRP with white will really stand out....that is until I get the $$ to get the same bronze Advan rims that the Cusco Impreza has~

Hey Keiho, I talked to my dad and he can get all four of your rims painted for around $150. Damn, those Advan rims are really nice

inzomniak, how do you want to paint your interior? if you talk about panel, you can try spray paint them yourself. It's totally not hard to take them off.

Hey Keiho, if you really want them powdercoated and not painted I can get the name of a place in Burnaby that will do it. as far as painting goes, it should be cheaper than powdercoating but not as durable. On the other hand I had the rims on my last car painted and drove it for 3 years and the paint remained fine (I never curbed it or anything though).

Just look in the yellow pages under Painting, or Powdercoating, or Finishing. Powdercoating is an extremely durable finish if the wheels are sand/bead blasted first. The wheel is grounded to the paint line, and as the powder is sprayed on,(the raw powder looks much like baking flour), the gun generates a positive charge and the powder is therefor electrically attracted to the wheel. It is very easy to get a nice even film on all areas of the wheel with no runs. The wheel is then baked at approx. 200 - 400 degrees F until the powder turns to a liquid state and is then baked on. The whole proccess is very fast and in a large shop they would have an automated line where once the part was loaded, it wouldn't be touched again by human hands until it is unloaded. As for cost it shouldn't be any more expensive than paint, as long as you stick to a color the place uses on a regular basis. You can't just mix up a custom color.

powercoating is way more expensive and longer lasting than painting...
it won't chip and crack so easily....
$80 for powercoating each wheel is not expensive at all...the lowest deal i heard was $280 for 4...
just to paint it...$150 is a fair price too...most shops will do it for about $100 plus mount and balance which will be $8/$10 ea...
yet the more layers of paint it goes on the more longer lasting it will be...and small budget kills good quality works...there is no way for both of them to exist together...

Inzomniak - Depending on how many pieces you want the interior painted, it can range quite a bit in price. The paint doesn't cost much but its the labor of taking apart all the small parts like around the vents that take a long time. Can't be exactly sure of how much it will cost unless I know which pieces you want painted.

Well I don't know... See I would do it like myself like GS116 suggested me to do, its just that I'm too lazy and I'm afraid that I'll break off one of the panels...

I'll find a picture of something I like and I'll name the panels off to you... thanks in advance

Heh, I think I should also paint my rims gunmetal grey just like the Type-R rims. Yeah it would be around $150 included everything. Anyone who brings their Impreza to Automind at East 10th in Vancouver for whatever work will automatically get a good deal.
