It depends on where you go for prices, and the color.

The shop I go to does the PC'ing for the windmills all over, so if I use a color they are using it is cheap.

I got quoted $50 for all 4 wheels on my buddies car, in white.

My valve cover was $25 satin black.

All my intercooler piping $100 satin black (normally a $600 job if it was a different color)

VC can run about 100+ depending on what color. Im getting mine done for $150 and 4 wheels for $150 isn't so bad. Gotta pay to play.
