Wheel Specialist Manchester. Any good?

I'm going to pop into the above today on my way back from Bolton and would like to know if anyone on here has used them and whether they are any good. All experiences good or bad please or alternatively if anyone recommend a wheel refurb service within reasonable driving from Macclesfield. Cheers FD

I would be interested but need to know which silver it is.

Also the price will have to come down considerably as £1400 ono is far too much as there is someone on ebay who will provide the what you are selling less the stand for £999 and is flexible on price.

A breaker is a what used to be know a scrap yard.

There are a few online who break Z3's and you can request specific parts. I have used Car Transplants near Nantwich before for bits of trim. They have a website with a list of cars they are breaking.
