yeah pics are pretty crap. thats a new nokia for ya. my old sony knocked socks off my new one.

yeah centre caps are the same colour. actually looks really good with the chrome lexus badge on the gunmetal finish.

also going to take off my rear lexus badge on the boot and hes going to spray that tommorow aswell the same colour as the wheels.

he's only a sprayer so the job only goes as far as rubbing them down and getting rid of the flaky laquer, then blowing them over in a colour. but for £120 i dont think its a bad deal.

They look nice mate, but I paid 200 quid to get 4 18" alloys stripped down and repaired after curb damage, repainted in a hyper black style finish, the tires put back on and all fully balanced!! Plus the work done was fırst class and to top it all off they were picked up and dropped off at my house free of charge!!

Highly recommended by me!! Surely it's worth paying a bit more for a pucka lasting job!

good for you mate!!! theres a place near me that does them for £200 aswell. with the same service by the sounds of it. but id rather spend that £80 i saved on other bits.

im happy with what ive had done, there only probably going to get kerbed after time, these things happen. but if im careful they will last as long as i want them to last!
