    Ha that STi is part of the local car club (Ultraspeed) over here in VA Beach. Peep the military Decals (blue), the VA inspection tag (Yellow) and the Ultraman on the top corner. The thing I like the most about that STi is, the hood, roof, and truck is still gloss black. The thing I hate about is that his new rims a hot pink.

    Expect 7k for color changing for a decent paint job.
    but then again flat black is hard to maintain and NOT recommanded for daily user.

    You can expect at least $5k if you have a hookup with a shop.

    Thumbs up

    Here was the STi before the flat black. I remember seen the White/Black STi last year, but it just hit that they are the same car.



    But I found some pic's on VADriven.com (The local Ricer forum)







    BKZJAYY718, good luck on the FX project.

    that fx wasnt painted flat black. it was just wet sanded to a dull finish.

    I'd say 10 bucks worth of sand paper

    ok everyone this paintjob should never cost more than any other regular paint should be wich is a couple grand all u need is a black any black it dosent have to be the most expensive shit either cause all blacks are mostly the same. then just get HOK flattener agent and mix it into the clear u get to Choose how much gloss or flat u want and the actuall flatener does not cost that much. so my advice is to go see how much it would cost to paint the car black and then ask how much for flat black and if the guy sais like 1 or 2 grand more laugh in his face and leave

    Sorry but ur also wrong it used to be that way when u didn't use a clear on a flat color but now it's as safe as any other paint because they use a flat clear trust me guys I spent my whole summer looking for this cuz I was goin to do it I wanted to be the first g sedan in flat but then I saw on driver someone already did it

    And can someone merge my posts I didn't see his post until I replied

    I would get it wrapped in vinyl, you can take it off later, and it will cost alot less.
