Powder Coated 172 Style 2008 550i Wheels

I had curb rash on three of the wheels on my baby. Attempted to fix it myself with decent results, but the clear coat started to peel off after about one year. Rather than trying to recoat them (I wasn't totally happy with the results anyway), I decided to have the wheels powder coated so they'd look factory fresh again.

I just picked up my refinished wheels today and couldn't be happier! They look great, and the cost wasn't bad either ($125/wheel). Woot!

Not bad, I can see a little rough coat on the full wheel pic but hey, looks almost like a brand new wheel and I believe they retail around $600 a piece new. Good work, where'd you get it done? I have some bash CR on my set as well...
