Being a lazy fecker, i have left these wheels for far to long. Have been running around on them like this for 3 years or more.

Embarrassed to say have visited Zedfest a few times with them in this state. :oops:
Often i have i have searched and only found refurb' companies in north Kent.

A friend had these pop up on face book and i have made contact. Sent them some pictures, They are coming today to have a look (and probably a laugh :lol: )

I understand you are probably not up to it at present Sean, but looking at those wheels, they are more than able to be DIY refurbed. It is very simple to do; all you need is a bit of alloy filler, some sandpaper, some paint and a lot of patience. Oh and somewhere to do it!
All good things come to those who wait. I'm really impatient which explains a lot.

F31 320i. Good car.
E89 20i Now fully dried
Z3 'free litre'. Project and a half. Complicated!
Mazda3 sold
Tatty old R56 Mini Cooper. Money pit!

Just watch out for cracks. Lady at work has those on her Z4, I noticed tyre one was looking a bit soft so she had the RAC out, he took the wheel off and there were three huge cracks, one of which was almost across the whole width of the rim.
