Those alloys look great post refurb, where did you get them done?

Had my GT Blackline for a few months now, still absolutely love every drive in it! Looks like you've been as lucky as me in getting a well looked-after car :thumbs:

Hi Dusky

I had them refurbished at Home | Alloy wheel repair and refurbishment | Preswick | Carrick Alloy Restoration UK

They're next to Glasgow Prestwick airport and their customer service and quality of work were outstanding. Their prices were one of the best I could find too.

Also, I've spent £3,000 on my Blackline in the last 5 months - everything that could go wrong seems to have gone wrong. Still love her though :)

What did you think of Carrick Alloys? Do you get a choice of silvers or is it just 1 shade? Need to get my wheels done and there local.

Cheers

Hi Ben. There were a few silvers they had ready to apply. I opted for the "high sparkle silver" and I'm very pleased with the results. Call them and ask for Eric who was exceptionally helpful. :thumbs:

I know, Muskie. I shouldn't torture myself. Must throw that calculator out and stop counting up the repair bills. :lol:
