I dropped my car off this morning to have all my alloys refurbed. I know the company doing it and they have an excellent reputation and are in my opinion very very reasonable on price.

I should be picking the car up tomorrow but until then here's the before photos:

I did it in the hope it might provoke GT4 and resurrect him from the depths of the Illuminati.

Damn

Saw the title and thought “At last, a self help grip for turbo owners addicted to power upgrades Question

Imagine my disappointment Sad

Oh and good luck on the wheel refurb Alex. Any reason you didn’t go with Chris at Exel Wheels? Thumb

Two reasons:

1: Local place. I dropped the car off this morning, only 10 minutes from my home and my Dad ran me back to base (love the quality time with my all time hero). I then have the excitement of using my trusted Vespa to get to work and back. God how I missed the buzzin' around on my 125cc bit of fun.

2. Well under £300 for the full monty wheel refurb on all 4 corners. Quality to be admired in my follow up post tomorrow.....with pics.

I'd love to use some of the services proudly promoted by members on here, but I'm a bit geographically challenged to warrant the distance.

Both Chris at Exel and Chris at Centre Gravity spring to mind.

You bobbing over on Saturday to the Cheshire meet? It'd be great to see you (& Joe if he's up for it).

I'll buy you both a drink........especially if you rock up in the 914 Thumb

Thanks Alex but I should have looked at yr location 1st as getting my wheels done there would be a “geographical challenge” for me seeing as I’m way down “soufff”

Never mind, still look forward to seeing the results and price sounds very competitive indeed Thumb
