    Has anyone got any pictures of their wheels that have been refurb'd by the above company?

    Also what's the latest discount code as CLIO10 no longer works.

    Marc, was the colour an exact match to the original or are they a slightly different shade? I'm having trouble finding someone that can match the colour on the trophy wheels.

    Cheers

    I have spoke to atleast 5 different powder coaters and none of them can match the renault colour code which is a standard paint code and not a powder coat.

    my wheels are almost 100% perfect but the center cap is a very slightly different colour which can only be noticed in pictures or close up and at eye level.

    Had my wheels done at the Enfield branch last week. Great service from Paul who runs the shop.
    They offered to match the Renault colour for a slight price increase. They stated that they would powder coat in their standard anthracite colour then paint the face in the Renault colour prior to clear coating.
    I didn't think their standard colour was too far away so didn't bother paying the extra.
    Hoping to get them fitted in the morning. :cool:

    The glasgow branch did an excellent job on my O2 wheels. I wanted the exact colour match of the original oz anthracite which as it turned out was a complete pain in the ass to get but they managed it and the work was top quality.

    Highly recommend them.
