I would recommend Wheel Collision Center in Edenvale (011) 608-3319

They work 24hrs as they do all Porsche S.A's rim repairs etc.
They did mine rims for my 370z in 24hrs they say 1-2 days but it is usually 1 day!!

Speak to Harvey he will help you out.

Well i got my 19"s on my Z done for R3500 and you do leave your car there but its inside a warehouse and they got Astons etc there and they open 24hrs like i said so its safe as its also in a industrial park. But i dropped the car off on Tuesday afternoon as i had it booked in for Wednesday and i picked it up at 9:30 am on thursday.

Wow that's quite steep! Obviously the 19"s bump the price up quite a bit though.

Thanks.

aacabriolet,

they are the best at what they do and that price is not bad for 4 rims.
I doubt you'll find somewhere cheaper that will do the work like these guys.

BTW i ordered my 135i last week and im getting the rims done black but gloss only problem is because i ordered a manual i had to do a special order as all cars coming in where mostly white and auto.

If u gonna hold out i'll let you knw what they quote me end of june for my rims...

Yeah. They not all as loud though. So I dunno
Get a lot of compliments from other 120i owners even.

Nothing really hey. Perhaps just a de-cat. Planning on getting a 135i vert sometime, but wanna see what this "///M1" is all about first.

Ah ok cool. I'm finishing off my degree this year then probably honours next year.

Check u around man.
