    My bentleys are not, have a look at the for sale thread ;)

    Faces are mint, dishes are not the best hense the price, all they need is a lick of paint and some rubber, and theres a good set up from reps

    If I had the money I'd get them straight away. Good price

    Not all fella seen a few sets go for £600-£700. Get Tims and I'll get them sorted for you ;) :happy: They would finish your car off nicely

    How much would it cost to sort them ash ive been texting tim but want my rims pristine, emailed my usual refurber and he said he would need to see the corrosion in the dishes in person. I would want all of this repairing and the fronts refurbed.

    Let me know if you can Cheers

    My mate could probably sort them out for £200-£300 max and that would be at a push. Plus i'd just moan at him if he wanted to charge me that anyway lol. So say £200-£250 full refurb. I'd have to show him the photos. But i've seen worse alloys giving to him and they look brand new when he gives them back. Normally takes him a day to refurb a set but may take a little long as he would want it perfect.

    For the cost it makes one hell of a difference, just need to make sure i get them put on straight coz ive seen a few wonky ones knockin about. . . . . and yea m8 mine are the downfacing ones, apparnetly the twin tips are only held on but 3 tak welds? so shouldnt be hard to remove. . . . .

    Yea the roof spoiler makes it look loads tidyer, looks like we all have plans should be a few better looking cars come the summer :)

    Cheers time will look even better with the wheels on :) yea it really easy just fishing line down the back of the badges to get them off, then i used white spirit to get the rest of the sticky off. . . .
