LoveMyLiFe22 - depending on your patience level, you can always do like I did and order one from the factory. I got exactly what I wanted but at the cost of the 3 month wait.

Just had mine done (same color though) and about $5k is what it would be for a different color.

they probably arent painting the bay then are they? not really nescessary if its the same color. you can tell its painted by the layer of paint on the door jams and such, but that might change the price if they did the whole shebang.

I say order it factory... that is the best way to do it. Also like everyone said I am sure there is a White or Black within 100 miles. My personal opinion, if you were willing to paint it.... buy one and custom paint that badness. Estoril blue would be a good color to look at Good luck.

I start at $4,000. Depending the color. Black is the cheapest color you could buy, starting at around $45/quart. Reds, oranges, blues, yellows are much more expensive starting at around $150-$200/quart. Three quarts to change the color, after a base is thrown. I'd charge you $4,000.

You guys are expensive as hell for paint jobs. My neighbors cats clawed the **** out of my old car before I shot them and a complete paintjob for Fusion orange metallic only ran me $2500 with labor and tax. I do agree there is nothing more beautiful than a clean black car...but the Lemans Sunset is quite the eye catcher. If you want to repaint it, get some miles on your car and repaint it once you get the rock chips that you will show up.

Hmm, thats a great deal for an awesome paint job, wheres this place at I need my 240 painted. The paint alone costed me 2000 with materials. I also had the motor pulled to do the enginebay and had all the windows and trimming removed too. 2500 has to be just a masking job and the enginebay left the stock color. I don't think shes gonna want to leave the enginebay lemans and paint the rest of the car a different color. Or maybe she will.

The entire car was done . The car was originally blue and I decided to have it repainted orange after the dumb cats ruined my paint. ST Motorsports sent me to a shop off Grant and Glendstone in Springfield, Mo and they did a great job. If your ever in Missouri and need a paint job I'd recomend them.

Actually, the Lemans Sunset is one of the best looking colors (behind Daytona Blue ). If it's not something you can live with, then definitely have the dealer find you what you want. Keep in mind that they dealer would much rather sell you something that he already has on hand but if it's a choice between trading for another car or not selling you anything, chances are he'll be willing to trade for what you want.
Agreed. That would be a very questionable way to waste money.

Pretty pointless to paint it another factory color IMO, I'd just be patient and get what you want. Luckily I wanted Daytona Blue and found the perfect one; my other choices were Silverstone Metallic and Super Black.

I honestly didn't like the Lemans Sunset at first but after seeing some in person, especially with wheels... It's now my second favorite color... If I have the Lemans Sunset, it would probably be my first favorite

Just an idea, but since you're getting it for Christmas, you could just be greatful and take whatever color comes your way.

Paint it Pink, and get white leather seats, and a little Fufu dog.

i would have to agree with everyone else on here. i wouldn't change the color unless it was going to be a show-car quality paint job. that's everything removed. Overhualin' style, not Pimp My Ride style.
