    Booking my car in for its alloys to be refurbished just wanting some ideas of colour also going to do callipers? Pics of people's would be a great help in deciding I was thinking maybe a dark bronze or grey? Thank you [​IMG]

    The black looks good on red with my car being black I think it won't look as effective

    Is the difference between satin and gloss that noticeable? I’m going to go for black on my red Leon, also noticed your brake calipers look different to mine, is yours a FL mk2?

    Looks really nice on a black car, certainly better than going for gloss black. At least there’s a nice contrast. Guessing that’s gun metal?

    I've got the same choice for my wheels as they are being sand blasted and then I get to pick my colour... Yours is spot on! Good work!

    Is that powder coated or stripped and dipped? How much if you dont mind me asking?

    Cheers

    Mine have already been powder coated and they didn't do a good job so now I have to go back to the bone and they should be good to go.

    I've been quoted £340 and 4 days work which is pretty good going me thinks...

    Yea that's really good tbh and 4 days is a honest quote mine took 2 days just to coat no stripping

    Its an 07 cupra , before it became the k1. I believe they are standard brakes to this model.
