    Hi guys,

    Can any of you recommend a decent place to get my wheels refurbished back to standard silver, based in or around London?

    Places I've tried:

    Lepsoms
    Spit n Polish
    BJV Engineering
    Diamond Styling

    All asking for on average ~£70-75 + VAT a corner, which I think is a bit pricey, and there is quite a long wait till next booking as I plan to leave the car there.

    I'm after a powercoat finish and laquer.

    Can anyone please advise?

    My understanding is that BJV don't do any filling on the alloys - is that the case? What state were yours in before you handed them in and are you happy with the results?

    I've heard a few horror stories about BJV when I checked for reviews on Google...I'm hoping it just accounts for a small proportion of people.
