Car Repainted

Is the second paint work on a car of low quality than the original?

I want to get my car repaint but some are of the view that the quality can never be the same as of the original in any case..............Is it true or not?

It's patently untrue. A good friend of mine is an autobody man who runs a private shop. He does paint work that is clearly better then the factory original as he spends more time on the work and often uses better materials than the factory. Do not forget, the car makers make money by making cars as quickly and as cheaply as possible. However, a cheap Maaco "Ambassador" job is also done as cheaply and quickly as possible. They typically peel and / or fade after a few years. It's skill, time and money that make a paint job superior, not the location.
