prob a silly question but...

is there anything stopping me from getting my new CTR and then paying to have it sprayed white?

seem to remember coming into a few issues when i went to do the same with my current car, like document information and insurance and vehicle registration etc etc

any thoughts / views / people who have done resprays before???

Of course there is nothing stopping you from doing it, but bear in mind a full respray done to an acceptable standard will cost 2-3k. More likely nearer to 3k.

Even then it will never be as good as a factory sprayed car.

You will also need to report the colour change and this may be seen as insurance companies as a modification and drive the insurance cost up.

I would suggest buying a MY09 in white...

Then there is the extra dosh required to do a 100% job.
Under the bonnet, engine bay, sills, door surrounds etc etc.

yeah i think i will go for the black and stick with it. unless i keep delaying things and then maybe the white will be more tempting.

im unsure i could pull off a bright white car :P

Zai0s ...I am all for being different ...Customization if done right is cool ...But i think you should wait for the white CTR to appear in the dealers .... as come the day of selling it you will take such a loss it will make you wonder why you ever thought it was such a good idea ...Bad move ....ON A STEEL HORSE I RIDE

Ok, point taken but you know what I mean.

To do a proper job the car would need to be completely stripped so no traces of the old colour remain under seals, in the engine bay, etc.....

I wasn't really referring to the quality or thickness of the paint. That would be much better on a resprayed car.
