Ok,

So i was talking to a guy, who knew a guy, who's friend was a guy who could sort ANY and ALL Alloy Wheel Problems we might have as a Forum !!

So i left it for a while after the EMS before i tackled the company with some figures and question and i have now have this offer to make for anyone in BFG who wants their Alloy Wheels re-furbed or completely re-painted.


For any Alloy Wheel upto "18 it will cost only €59 per wheel and not the usual €90, they normally charge. For this the company will blast the alloy, dip it in acid and then re-spray it ANY colour you want!!


Mine is going into the shop soon to get a good overhauling and then re-sprayed...................................you guessed it !!!! WHITE !!!!!


I'll let you know how it turns out, but after seeing their work so-far, i'm not massively worried, the work will take 5 days to complete and i hope to get mine in very early in Jan !!

Let me know if anyone wants new wheels

Davie,

Thats a cracking price for across here, I couldnt get the wheels re-furbed for less than 100 euros a wheel.

I'll have to have a look at things when I get back as really dont know what I'm doing with the car on my return, depends if anything else is on the market for me.

QUICK UPDATE :

I have my ST booked in to a really great Paintshop in Munster on Monday !! He is charging me €50 per alloy and is doing a FULL refurb followed by a Ice White respray on the front, then a Matt Black respray on the inside Lip of the alloys. Not bad for €200 !!! Whilst i'm there, he will also respray my Rear Spoiler AND RS Vents on the Bonnet for an extra €50 ( i think thats an awesome deal !!!)

To top it all off, he's lending me the company car untill my car is finished and its a Golf 5 GTI !!! (free of charge)
I hope the Workmanship is as good as he's Customer Care hahahahaha

Expect pics soon guys.

FINALLY got my ST back today,

Decided to get a full re-furb on the Alloys and then add a Powder Coating of Ice White onto the outer suface of the Alloy followed by a Matt Black Inner Lip.
Then had the RS Vents, Screen Washer and Spolier all re-painted in Ice White too (just for good measure) I have to say, I am very very happy with the outcome !!! €300 all in , for all the work (fair pricei think) plus a Company Car to rag around for a week too HAHAHA

On Sunday I'll be taking ALL my stickers and De-cals off, giving the Tippex Mobile a good wash and post up some pics for you too.

See you soon

Cheers Stingy,

I know its not a popular choice but i like it and i fancied trying something a bit different (just glad it seems to have paid off)

Blue and White looks pretty good i think, (even though i was warned off it hahaha)

I am not sure about the Bonnet vents and spoiler if I am honest but I like the rest and think Blue calipers would suit it best.

+1

Quite like the rest but as mentioned above, the vents in white are a step too far and ruin the look.
