post pics when you can so we can see their work.
Yup will take pictures once I wash my car. I've touched up most of the scratches so it's not really noticeable anymore. Anyway stay tuned.

What frustrates me most is that as a professional wheel shop, they don't even have a touchless tire mounting machine... they still use the old fashioned jaw clamps and levers that creates dents and scratches on wheels...

Don't get me wrong, these are hard working people... I went to pick up my wheels at 8pm and they were still there... though it's sad that with just some slight improvements they can be so much more... so much better...
Bump for pics. Thinking of doing this with my E93 Jerez Black.

You guys think Jerez Black would look good with Gloss Black rather than Matte Black?

If any of you guys are actually considering doing this ghetto mod, please POWDERCOAT the wheels and dont use regular paint as they WILL chip, flake, etc etc...

Also, make sure the lug holes are taped off or something so no powdercoat gets in there. The bolts are a very tight fit and there is no room to add any paint or powder inside the holes.

I don't think this is ghetto at all, moreover I think it's an excellent alternative to spending $$$$$ on over priced wheels

+1, the stock 19s are really nice looking and they are forged too. They beat a lot of junkie 3-piece luxury aftermarket wheels that are all bling and no go.

I think a Hyper Black color on the wheels will look good with the Melbourne Red.

Dont get me wrong I love the stock 19s, but they look best in stock finish also...

Matte or Satin black would look better then hyperblack...

Wow, that looks pretty good. It would look great with AW too. I don't like phantom cars, so I wouldn't do it on my car. Pics of the whole car please?
