Precision is OK, but they only spray they do not powdercoat.

Raf,

I would check Carcone's. Quy's coating is great as I mentioned, but they do not like liability of removal/re-assembly from what I experienced. He is a really nice and honest guy as mentioned but I've only used him for calipers.

Interesting, they didn't guarantee me a match, in fact he told me it will not match the finish on my OEM 65's. No one(shop) did. Its supposedly near impossible to get a match, even BMW didn't.

The main reason I never went through with my wheel refinishing.
Next year I am doing regular finish in gunmetal.

One year later however, the pain started to chip right off the wheel.

Personally, I'd look elsewhere.
AVOID Precision. It's just not their quality of work alone, but their customer service is absolutely horrid. Lies and inaccurate estimates of turn-around time (off by as much as 14+ days in one instance) and unwillingness to own up to serious, glaring mistakes. Search my previous posts for my terrible experience with Precision, including other's.

I'd go Carcone's for the best job money could buy.

My experience with Precision was also terrible for the exact same reasons. Mickey mouse operation.

If I send my ZCP's there to get finished, I'll post before and after pics. If I really have the time, I'll let them do the one I want and compare to the rest first.

Terry read here and send your wheels to this guy:

The colour of my ZCP I feel Carcone's can do it...time will tell.
