i got the $299 one, they sand down the car first but the original color is still there, i had my 4th gen green changed to viper blue and all i have received are compliments, it turned out a lot better than i expected, door jams were all clean and around the engine bay was clean, the masking was good, so i would highly recommend
wow!!!! all i hear about maco is that they dont remove the paint from before and just paint over it and they only put like 1 coat but i guess it depends if yuor lucky to get a good paint job from them..IMO,i think u should save some mnore money and have a better body shop paint your car...it might be a little more expensive but i can guarantee you the quality would be 10x better than a maco paintjob
I would highly recommend the one near me, every maaco is diff. They all do diff jobs. Ive taken 2 cars to the maaco near me, there were minor imperfections in the paint in tiny spots but nothing i would cry about. I drive my car and beat the crap out of it daily, i was extremely happy with the way it came out and I will definitely use them again.

Most people will just say research into the Maaco that you want to take your car to...It really all depends on who is doing it. Ask if you can see an example of their work. I still would never take my car there unless it was my beater.
like someone said above, every maaco is different. I know some of the paint shops near me take pictures of the car after it's finish, so ask if they have any pictures of customers cars. I personally wouldn't take it to them, i've seen shitty jobs come out of the one near me. so do some research and don't waste 400 bucks.
Maaco Paint job, mine was around 450 (if i hadn't had some bodywork), with 4 year warranty.
These were taken about 4-5 months after paint. This is also my beater, so i didn't worry about it coming out amazing, but was very happy. no overspray, fixed any blemishes, and was without the car for about a week.
