Just remember that with body shops, you get what you pay for. Cheaper usually means cheap quality!
Quality means jack for me (especially for my front add-on). It never last being mint for longer than a month in WA roads Mine is already cracked again... :hmm:

But that seems to be a good deal for price around $500 including paint and install.

Hey! Don't forget who got your reflectors painted for you! That was cheap. lol :p

Edit: Usually, for painting, I like cheaper better.
Since painted things are usually for the exterior, means that there is potential for vandalism, rock chips, or some other damage.
Not to mention, you can always review it at the shop and tell them.. THERE'S A MESS UP HERE! and have them fix it.

But, for custom work... I wouldn't take it to just any body shop.
