    I asked what they do, dipped in chemicals to remove paint (tyres off obviously lol) bead blasted to clean them up, damage to rims repaired, and powder coated then baked.

    Bradders: most of that damage looks like its come from kerbing or maybe a really rough tyre fitter...

    Most of powdercoaters will work on RAL colors. Obviously they wont have all from the pallet so you would have to call and ask about the color number you want.

    my brother got his beemer wheels done recently.

    He picked a metallic paint code, which you cant do with powdercoat. Seemingly they used a powder primer, painted the wheels, then used a powder clearcoat to protect them.

    Yeah, they had some sitting as you go into reception. Along with strut tops, other car parts, aluminium drink bottle. Lovely finishing. Not expecting my wheels to be THAT immaculate due to corrosion, as long as they're pretty tidy I'll be happy enough. I'll get good before and afters of the 4 on the car, they're the worst and will be my winter set

    Changed the sparkplugs and can't believe the difference it's made, feels like it's gained 20bhp or so :D not sure how many miles it's done on the old set of plugs :o

    Just need to change the fuel and air filters and it's had everything done in the last 400miles
