Only $150?  Apple steals tons of dough, and then 3rd parties want to do the same…  What a cash cow!

For $150 I hope it is buffed to a perfect finish and resilient to scratches.

ridiculous…150 for a paint job on a phone that likely cost 199?  kinda like taking my 60K S4 in for a 50K paint job just so mine is pink unlike anyone elses.  Oh, and while their at it, they will remove the audi rings and replace it with a custom paint logo.

i guess eccentrics need a place to spend all their money…why not a 150 dollar phone paint job

Yeah, right…. Spend $150 to void your Apple warranty…. and be out of a phone for 2 weeks… I’m sure only few die-hard Mac heads would even consider this…...

it’s way over priced and they really think that anyone is going to agree without a phone for 2-3 weeks.
