Um, should be about $85-$100, but if they are good, they are good. Look at it this way. If you get two estimates, either way you go, you'll have the most info and bargaining power. :cool:

I paid $30, with a paint match/longevity guarantee. I really wouldn't pay more for paint than the part itself! Alki Autobody. Pretty reputable in the Seattle hot-rod scene...

Hehe, I dropped mine off on night, and picked it up the next after noon. And $150 for a STi scoop? I got mine for $105 shipped straight from FHI thru a deal. Even now I can get them for $130-$140 shipped depending where ya are. Where'd you buy yours from?

Lemme make some calls tomorrow. I can get the scoop shipped directly to you using a shop that I have a contact at in Tokyo. I didn't realize you were on the west coast. If you can wait, I can at least save you some money on a hoodscoop. $135 shipped directly to you. I'm gonna drop off my side skirts 2morrow for painting, so I'll ask about the hoodscoop again. Hopefully they can package a deal for us. What color is your car? If it's not black, what's your paint code?

There have been a couple of vendors on i-club selling the STI scoops painted for around $180 (ScobyDude had one in the VendorGB section). I would do a search there. Saves the extra work of getting it done yourself.

Okay, I don't know where I got $30 from...My gross total was $71.81. Maybe the Subydude route might be the way to go...I think I got it confused with getting side skirts painted, which will be for $130....sorry.

Theres a site where you can get the STI hood scoop prepainted in all colors (or one if you want) for $229. I got it. The paint quality was pretty goor and only under a flashlight at night can you notice the difference in shades of WR blue.
