Glossy Black Alloy Wheels Performance Wheels

Hi,

Am thinking of buying the 19" performance 313 and wanted to find out what company offers the service of painting the above rims into glossy black to match the glossy shadow-line, to have the nostalgic effect,

do bmw dealers offer such service, is their recommended company out there?, please post if you have any pics of the above alloys in glossy black or any other rims in glossy black for that matter.,

or if you are a graphic designer and know how to use photoshop,

I highly doubt BMW will do this for you but a company called Lepsons might be able to help. They are a wheel refurb company but I think they offer a painting service too.

Stephen james bmw in enfiled would probably do this for you. I know that for standard BMW wheel colours they were charging 55 pounds per wheel not inc. vat, however, offered me 10% discount if i wanted to get all 4 done.

They were also the only dealers who would paint my wheels a different colour and actually refurb the whole wheel, whereas many others do smart repairs.

Gor for it - black wheels IMO are great. I have black 199s on Le Mans Blue but my wheels are definitely gloss (not glossy)

I found these 3 before:

http://www.thewheelspecialist.co.uk/
http://www.pristinealloywheels.co.uk/
http://www.lepsons.com/

the thing I'd pay most attention is to choose a company that doesnt sandblast the wheels to remove original paint but treats them with acid instead.

I was thinking of doing this also.
Maybe to a set of CSL's .
I changed my Kidneys to Gloss Black to match window trim.

Was also thinking of getting a performance diffuser done in Gloss Black .

The wheel I had repaired by Pristine ^ was to a high standard. Well pleased.
