    Alloy Refurb, Opinions Please

    Allrite people,

    Finally got some spare penny's in the bank, so ive decided to get some damaged alloys which I purchased from someone here refurbished.
    There pretty badly damaged so the company which is going to be doing them tells me it will cost me £95 per wheel for
    a full refurb inc chemical strip and shotblasting, that sound about right?

    I need the opinion of the wise people here at AOC regarding what finished i should have applied to the alloys after the refurb. I love the hyperblack finish they have at the moment, but im told that cant be re-done and i have a choice of the following...
    very fine silver, coarse silver, anthracite or black.

    Heres a pic of the car with the alloys on...

    Thanks, looking forward to the replys.

    Imo that is a lot of money mate, i pay about £35+vat for a normal finish or £45+vat for a chrome/ diamond cut etc kind of finish for comparison.

    £95 is very pricey indeed

    My boyfriend had hyper silver alloys, they can be redone but took a few attempts to get a good colour match

    £95 seems a little steep. I can get them done for £30 a corner.
