So for living, I do collision repair...
I decided it's time to repaint my '17 m2.
The original color was MG.. I loved the color but wanted something else. So when I got rear ended I decided now is the perfect time since already the back half of the car will be painted. Might as well paint the front half that the same time.

I'm almost done assembling the car.. and i have to tell you. I love the outcome! I think it's the best choice I have made with the car so far.

Now times for the pictures...

All of the jams were painted, insides of the doors, and tomorrow we are going to spray the engine bay.

I would've gone with another BMW color, but that's just me...

Looks like a darker version of Audiís Nardo Grey. In these pictures it looks like a subtle change from Mineral. Iíll wait for more pictures in proper lighting once assembled.

Beautiful! Looking forward to seeing the finished car. I like that you are doing the full deal, engine bay, jams and all.

Average M2 Owner: "Damn. I might need a new trunk lid. Hey BP forum guys, will this buff out?"
This Guy: "Well looks like I need to disassemble the entire car and repaint it."



LOVE the new color! Nicely done.

Can't wait to see the car put back together. Personally, I liked this color a lot on an M4; don't think the M2 will disappoint.

OP, since you had the car gutted out like that, may as well have replaced the roof with a CF one

Is the rear bumper a different shade than the quarter panel?

I will post more pictures outside after it is all finished. The pieces were all painted with the same gun, same time. It is the lighting from inside the shop as well as the angle.

I hate to have to tell you this but there are yellow spots all over the driver side of your new paint job.
