My uncle is in town for a few months were he's from he is a auto body guy he is doing his bussiness here for a while I want him to paint my sti all the small dings from the last owner and scratches I think it will add value to my sti it has going on 94k miles do you think it's even worth it for that many miles I know that is still very low miles but I also know a lot of wrx owners are at 55k or so for a 06 like mine so what do you guys think a nice flawless finish will it add some value? Also it's been bugging me since I bought the car the side skirts have like a lump on both sides same spot you can only see it from a cretin view is that normal?
Clean Paint applied by a professional body shop is always a good idea, In my book. As far as increasing the value of a vehicle for sale you wont see the ROI. If hes family and he is going to do a nice job for cheap then I say let him do it but dont go choosing a NON-Subaru color. That will put you into a very niche market when you try to sell it. Clean Paint and a clean interior usually adds about $500 to the perceived value of a car.
Not worth it if your selling it but worth it to feel good rolling around in a freshly painted ride : )
