Haha thanks for the tip guys, but this photo was taken whe i first got the car. I actually work at Super Cheap so iv degreased and cleaned it up since then.

Just wanted to know if anyone has heard a good place or way to get the calais rims polished to a mirror finish? I'd rather keep these ones on than buy new chromies

hey mate. Im in west Brisbane. Iv been calling a lot of metal polishers around Brisbane/Ipswich. They are all set on around the $50 per wheel mark. I have heard people getting them done for as low as $20 or $30 so ill keep calling till I find a cheaper option for the moment
