And the reason for painting a 7 year old car? Wasting a boat load of money and de-valuing your car perhaps?

A quality paint job is probably close to two thirds what the wholesale value of the car is, and then it will devalue it some more.
A good paint job requires the removal of handles and trim, painting jambs, the inside of hood and trunk. Maybe you can find someone who paints old police cars when they go into taxi service.
