Alloy refurb

Hi, New to forum, new to 159s not new to Alfas!

Picked up my new one yesterday (2.4) from a decent garage, but one thing they wouldn't do for me (they did a fair bit to be fair- new EGR, tyres, injector clean) was to refurb the alloys. There is some bubbling on two of them.
Anyone know a price for doing the two (or should I get all 4 done)?

Also, only two dissapointments so far are the diesel noise on start up (first diesel) and the awful feel of the qtronic lever (is there an aftermarket one, an improvement)?

Try Autoshine, Redruth for the refurb of your wheels, you may be surprised (in a good way) at the price.

Ive found The Wheel Specialist offer a good service.

Albeit they are a national franchise, some may be better than others. Google them in your area
