Golf GTI Monza Refurb

Aren't these incredibly hard to refinish?

They can be done, but not perfectly IMO - it looks like a refurb rather than OEM (IMO). I had one Monza II refurbed once and personally, never again. Alloy excellence was an utmost priority for me (OCD's etc), so I preferred to fork out for a new one the twice it happened.

If you've got no kerb damage or chips etc you may be successful in getting them done under VW Warranty - Worth a go.

Unfortunatley it's out of it's warranty by 2 years. I did get them replaced previously when it happened the first time round and now just the one has come back looking worse than ever.

I just had a set of 18s powder coated in metallic titanium and they look the dogs bollox. Yes, very shiny!

Find a decent plastic coating specialist and ask to see their colour chart. There's loads of options now compared to a few years ago.

Oh, and get them to acid dip the wheels first, rather than shot blast them +++
