Aerokit Paint/Install Cost


Recommended Posts

Just curious what others have paid recently for paint and install of a factory aerokit. I got a quote of $2,900, but honestly don't have any idea if that is good or bad. Thanks in advance.

Had side skirts painted 4 months ago, $200 in a high end shop. I provided the paint code and installed them after they were painted. Is the price U got qouted include the installation also? I am going to instal the car graphics front end spoiler and lip again $200. Did you replace the front bumper. Then I can see paying more!

The price I got includes painting of all aerokit parts (front nose/spoiler, side skirts, rear spoiler and GT side trims and installation of all parts. I don't have a break down of paint vs install.

I just paid $2161 for a very outstanding job at painting and fitting the complete factory Aerokit on my 2001 996. It included the two rocker panels, the front bumper, the rear deck lid and putting in it the complete hardware (fans, wiring, etc.) from the older lid on this one and, lastly but not least, the GT fins at the bottom of the rear bumper. Not only that, this company also painted my black rubber bumperettes and, in the interior of the car, also painted the instrument surround, rear center console (the big one that holds the shifter and parking brake) and the "horseshoe" area, which is the part where the radio, A/C vents etc. are located. All of these parts were painted Speed Yellow, which is a standard color and may be cheaper than the color you might want.

Therefore, if you are using a standard color, I think $2900 for just the Aerokit is a bit high. Otherwise, find out how much more is the metallic paint, if this is what you'll be using, and compare this to the price I told you to make a decision.

I hope this helped a little bit. Good luck and let us know how it turns out. :)

Thanks for that. I thought the price I got was a little high. My car is a non metallic color, so that shouldn't be the difference. I called this shop because they have done these installs before. Don't really think I want mine to be the first! This will be phase II. Phase I will be the new wheels I have on the way. I'll post some before and after pics as I proceed. Thanks again.

Well since they are doing all the fitting, painting, deactivation of the lid spoiler, and installation. doesn't seem too far off to me. I think anywere from 2200 to 3000 is probably where this would fall into. I am sure they are quoting U a price based on longer fitment times. Sometimes things have to be tweeked a little and lined up.
