    Honda dealers now do an official EP3 refurbished wheel service on an exchange basis.
    You order the wheels, 300 approx as far as I understand, they send them to you and you leave your wheels at the dealership for them to collect.

    Mate of mine has just bought a 52 plate EP3 and the wheels needed tidying up. He's done this, got the 'new' wheels the next day and the wheels they have sent him are just like brand new ones - top quality.

    Just had mine refurbished at my local plastic coaters.
    Stripped, treated, primed and coated.
    Also gave me spray primer/paint for the centre inserts - all for 160

    My Enkei's now look awful again. I don't know why the place that did it had to put so much powder coat primer on as when I manage to peel off a flake it's nearly 1mm thick. Technology must have moved on in nine years to get a better job than last time. After all, OE alloys don't suffer from paint peel for at least 10 years, and the paint seems to be much more durable from new.

    Hi, anybody can recommend a good powder coating place in birmingham. Also I have bought some centre cap carbon stickers from mook on the forum. Will the centre caps also need painting or can I just remove the centre cap stickers off and do a straight swap with the carbon ones as 1 of the wheel conpanys is saying they are not going to apply the stickers on as it's the customers job to sort centre cap stickers out. Do the stickers usually require a lacquer over for them to stick properly...?Cheers haz
