This is the second set of alloys I've had refurbished by ChrisW thumbsup As usual, the logistics fell into play - I didn't have to lift a finger, originals were taken away, loan wheels were fitted and within a week it looked as though I had brand new alloys (to me it looks like a brand new car!). It's a pity I didn't take any 'before' pics but I can tell you that all 4 wheels were previously scuffed pretty much around the whole circumference and stood out sorely. Perhaps Chris will post his before pics. Anyway, here are the 'after' pics.

I'm also a recent customer of Chris's service.... A thoroughly nice genuine guy, my Turbos look better than new... The only down side is that I've been unable to drive my car since they were fitted as I had an accident pre Xmas and I'm learning to walk again.... Rolling Eyes

Car accident?? Learning walk full stop or learning to cope without driving?? Hope you are ok my friend.

I collapsed Xmas eve Chris whilst shopping with the kids... Wrecked all my back and leg muscles due to spasm.... Was in hospital until late Xmas day... On the mend now and can walk albeit very slowly... Thank god for my Chiro and Physio chap.... I can drive the X5 now being an auto but cannot push a clutch pedal down yet....
Getting there though....

Glad to hear that you are on the mend Baldguy, all the best.
I've just arrived for Chris to pick up my Turbo hollow spokes on Wednesday, I bought them some months ago with track tyres on but I'm going to put my new winter tyres on them. It seems like a great opportunity to get them cleaned up. I'll put up photos when I get them back.
