Approx. 300 bucks is what you should be paying..

Re: How much should I expect to pay when I get my Valences sanded+painted next week? (gjacob)

Hope this helps:
I had my front valence painted when the body shop repainted my bumper under warranty. Charged me an additional $50(US). I later went back and had my rear valence painted as well as my sidemarkers/running lights painted body color as well. This cost me $100(US). I saw the sidemarkers painted body color on a silver Jetta in MAX Power Mag a while back and really liked it as opposed to the clear fad. The light still shines through orange at night...Kinda cool.

So, you got the side markers and the corner lenses painted? I've seen the corner lenses painted before, but not the side markers. I'd love to see it, got any pics?

Your got your lights mixed up. That is the side marker. By definition a side marker is just that, marks the side on a NA car. It does not flash. The light that you are talking of behind the front wheels is call a side repeater. This is strictly a flashing signal lamp that remains off when not in use.
Make sense?

I understand what you are saying but, if you look in the Driver Gear catalog, the ones you are referring to as a "side repeater", they call it a "side marker".
Either way, doesn't matter I guess. I have seen them referred to as both.
