Finally got wheels done!!!

After much frustration with my dealer I purchased from about getting my wheels done black prior to delivery, only for them to say they cannot do it due to the sensors in each tyre being $2500 each (what a crock of shit, firstly) and they are so fragile and don't want to damage them (oh, it kept getting better) they are done! Obviously not by those retards!

I am so glad they refused to do them because I have just picked up my JGC from Alloy Pro who specialize in doing race wheels and alloys......Now can't thank my dealer enough for being so dumb and saying they cant risk doing it!

I am stoked with the final result

Re: Finally got wheels done!!!

Thanks guys! I was initially going to get a satin finish, but after speaking to the guys at alloypro, decided to go with gloss. So glad I asked for their opinion. Will keep the lug nuts as is, was going to get black but think they look fine next to the gloss.

Does anyone know where to get black door handles?

Next steps are taking off side strips, colour matching grille and rear chrome strip.
