    Wheels look well mate. I like them, good Job!!
    How about some S4 door blades to compliment them, kinda give it a visual blend if you get what I mean.

    Well had my one alloy done at city powders, £25 all in as didn't have tyre put back on....its not the best job in the world. Its looking OK but isn't perfect.

    I am also not sure (only just got it back in the dark) if the colour matches the other wheels!!!!!!! So it might just head back on the spare again! It seems a bit ddarker silver....but will check tomorrow!

    My mate had his skoda wheel done that had a big gouge in it. They have filled it as best as possible but still quite a mark in it!

    Verdict - you get what you pay for! a quick set of old wheels done for winter is fine but properly then probably not worth it!
