Eventually got around to having my wheels refurbished and I'm very pleased with them. Before and after photos attached. Just driven home and took photos immediately but really I should have given them a wash/wipe first. However, you can see the massive improvement. 😀

Yeah, they look a whole lot better. It's a shame that the factory finish is so prone to corrosion. I had my alloy's repainted about 2 years ago and they're still fine so hopefully yours will last a good while too. You'll just have to make sure you don't kerb them now 🙂

Nice, and bonus kudos for having matching tyres. 😁

New/refurbed, or just well-cleaned wheels always lifts the appearance of the whole car.

May I ask what you paid? I ask as I was going to have my wheels refurbed (always losing air) but discovered that the price was just about the same as set of new BBS. Around 500 squids iirc.

Hi Ian. I paid £240 in total for the 4 wheels which I think is a very good price (I had a quote from another local company of £295). I took the car in at 8am yesterday and collected it at 2pm today.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
