As an example my son's 98 Civic is an Inca red color (again 1 of the highest cost colors) that has 3 different pearls mixed into it, and costs $178 a pint. Then there's reducers, and clear that you have to buy to go over the color. Note; you still have to do the body prep work (sanding and primers) before you can actually add color. This is all time consuming, and most body shops around here charge 65 to 85 an hour (depending on the shop) to do, which is why they prefer insurance work.
I would have gotten a new front bumper myself, but then, I got plans to get another vehicle and use my CG5 as my commuter/daily vehicle.
