quality Wheel Repair shop

I recently curbed one of my OEM 18's (Arghhh) and I am looking for a quality wheel repair shop. The curbing is not that bad so I am pretty confident any good wheel repair shop could do a decent job. I am more worried about the quality of the color matching with the fairly unique anthracite color of the wheel.

I stopped by Seattle Wheel Service in Ballard last night and the owner told me: No problem, we use BMW paint and it'll be perfect. Can I trust that? How easy it is to repair such painted wheel?

Any recommendation in Seattle?
Thanks,

I would ask Jeff Butler (Haury's).

I believe the factory wheels are powder coated, but a good shop should be able to come close. I can only recommend Skip's Wheel Werks in the Portland area. Skip has done good work for me on many occasions. http://www.skipswheelwerks.com/

Thanks guys for the info. I decided to contact my trusted service adviser and have his guy repair the wheel. A bit more $$ than Seattle Wheel Service but he tells me the repair will be perfect.

I will let you know.

Oh, and NWAS. They were a little more pricey from what I was quoted.

Seattle Wheel Service is excellent. I had them refinish many wheels (for Volvo's mainly) and have nothing but positive things to say about them.

I got my wheel back yesterday. Looks really nice. I cannot tell where it was repaired. Color match is really good. Maybe a smidgen darker than stock. Hard to tell. $$ but worth I'd say.
