Thumbs up Powdercoated 359's Cheap and Same Day!

So I was looking at ordering a set of GTS 359's, but was told by my friend at a dealership they would take my car with powder coated wheels as long as they looked nice. I began my search online and called for some quotes and was getting in the neighborhood of $600-850 including dismounting/remounting. I then came across a place on Google that was advertising $380 inclusive. So I went to check the place out yesterday and see some of their samples. It happened to be a metal fabricating company and they had some pretty awesome work. I was told it was same day service as long as the car was there by 8am so I had it there today and had it back at 4:30. It ended up being $420 because they're 19's, but I am very pleased with their work. A tire place up the street dismounts and mounts them and I dropped my car off there so it wasn't really being driven by anyone else. NO ADDITIONAL miles were put on the car once I picked it up which was a huge relief as it seems no one ever listens to my request to not joyride. I was given the m decals in a plastic bag and haven't put them on yet, but here are some [iPhone] pictures (ignore the smudge marks on the wheels, they're from mounting the tires). I'll take some better ones with perfectly clean wheels and a better camera soon.

Can you ask for more gloss or more matte?
Keep us updated on any issues with how they last.

Looks really good.
Thanks.

They had a matte color and gloss color available, but there might be in-betweens for special order?
