Not long after I graduated, I bought a Honda CRX to replace the Chevy Nova my dad had given me...it got pretty messed up when I get hit from behind while I was waiting for some moron who had stopped randomly in front of a fast food restaurant to get going again. Besides my car damage, I also got the gift of many years of back and leg pain...luckily gone now.
Anyway, a year or two later Honda starting shipping CRXs with a blue green color I liked a lot at the time, not so much anymore. I was really jealous anytime I saw a CRX in that color on the road and finally called a paint shop to see what it would cost to repaint my car.
The guy on the phone was incredulous that I would want them to repaint a newer vehicle that had no damage and kept telling me it was a bad idea...I kept asking for some guess as to what the price might be, and he finally said he wouldn't give me an estimate and the shop didn't want the job. He said that I wouldn't be happy with the results and it would just be a hassle for them to deal with me after the job. This was probably a step above an Earl Scheib shop, still on the budget end.
