I would love to see the outcome of that. When will your wheels be finished??
 

I meant the hubs though in my comment not the wheel alloy itself, ( the bit the alloy would screw into). It tends to rust after a while and looks Orange against the black alloys and red callipers etc.

I’m getting my alloys done black on the 30th if yours will be done before then then send me a photo of it so I can see please haha

@Jay Bamrah

Oh sorry … I thought the alloys but it is a good suggestions - would be looking to change the brake discs and pads at some point so hopefully that will get rid of these rusty ones 

I haven’t booked my alloys in yet as I am trying to spare a day from work as the garage I spoke to are based in Milton Keynes - likely to be after you get urs done

if you don’t mind me asking - u getting it done locally and how much have u been quoted? I have asked a few places and quotes are anywhere between  £160 to £340

Mine is a professional company I saw their other products the standard is amazing so I was okay to pay the premium. It was £70 per wheel plus they’re fitting my new tyres in that cost. I then had to buy black locking wheel nuts myself as they don’t stock them which I found weird to be fair.

myalloys.co.uk

i think if it’s done wrong it can very easily look cheap and wrong so I didn’t want to do that. 
 

they’re going to fully refurb the wheel from any dents etc then do it gloss black then apply a grey laquer over that which is like a grey window tint (it gives the gloss black wheels a grey tint to them in certain lighting). If you want diamond cut alloys but the silver but to be grey instead of silver it’s £125 per wheel( that’s what the laquer is traditionally used for)

 

hope that helped. I know I’m bad at wording things to make sense so you might have to read it 2-3x haha

Thanks … this is very useful… good luck with refurb. I am planning to upgrade to 18” next year so didn’t want to spend a lot on the stock wheels (other than getting them painted)

we can always exchanges pictures once the wheels are painted

Sure … I am trying to get the car checked in early next month so will look forward to see your wheels

Re the 18” wheels it will really depend on what the budget allows as need to start saving aggressively. Top of the wish list are the likes of Rays / Enkei / Oz, but could settle in on some Japan Racing / Sparco / XXRs - looking to go slightly wider as well so maybe 18x9.5 with new PS4 all around 🤞

People always show washed gleaming cars in scenic locations, so I thought I'd show the darkside.

It's dirty, unwashed, up in the air for some maintenance, getting ready for some hard miles in the summer sun.

Please excuse the mess behind it, I've just moved house.

The intercooler core is visible through the grille. So Boosted is all i see in this picture. :)

Hey @Jay Bamrah sorry didn’t see your message until after I had booked my wheels for a refurb and painting (Gloss Black)

Took the car in this morning and the guys did a great job to turn it around in less than 6 hours at a very reasonable price

This is how they look now 😍

Coincidence much haha I got mine back today also, u should consider black locking wheel nuts etc iL attach the link 

 

mine are gloss black with a grey laquer finish to give them an off black look aka in certain positions they have a tint of grey to them and the black is less shiny glossy etc

The headlights are smoked VLANDs … in fact I went for the whole set so have got the smoked VLAND taillights and rear diffuser lights … love them 

I didn’t want to spend too much so found these guys in MK who did the job for £160 (all in) … they also turned it around in about 6 hours while I waited at their garage this morning.

I know some refurb shops take 24-48 hours so this maybe not be the best in the quality stakes - only time will tell

Sorry … I meant you asked how much I paid for the refurb and painting the alloys back … that was £160

I got the smoked  VLAND taillights and rear diffuser lights straight from the VLAND website and got one of the local garages to fit it for me (comparison picture)

@Jay Bamrah

thanks for sharing the website line for the black wheel nuts … had arrived last week but only managed to get them fitted on the the car this afternoon - they make such as difference A80336E1-35C2-4BAE-8BE6-EBAD7BB4ED4A.thumb.jpeg.afb42f5458f5fd08cf199f15bf968ed3.jpeg

More decals on the car over the weekend … loved this 86 one in particular so couldn’t wait to get them on the car since they arrived earlier in the week 

…. if only I could have done a better job with a few air bubbles but pleased with the overall efforts and the outcome 😍

Is that offer open to everybody? You might get inundated. I want to get my wheels reburbed. If not possible at yours, do you know of a good place in London or Essex?
