    respraying alloys?

    i drive a stock 2001 astra 1.6 sxi,silver. im looking to start modding her,and have been toying with the idea of getting the alloys resprayed black as opposed to buying new alloys, as i like the existing ones and figured a respray would be cheaper than a new set of rims.

    how much would i be looking at to get them resprayed?

    heres a quick (badly done) photoshop,with black alloys,although id keep the central silver vaux badge,what do you guys think?

    They would look terrible in black mate just save up until you can afford to buy some bigger alloys.
