Me too. It should’ve been offered as an option to the flaky diamond cut finish from the factory.

My local refurbisher has started doing satin gold with a diamond cut face, although we all disagree with the durability of diamond cut I think they would look very smart on a white 3 door GTI, I believe only the Santiago's could pull that look off though.

I'm planning to refurb my Austin wheels and am leaning towards powder coating. Has anyone got photos of a black Mk7 GTI with any sort of powder coated finish?
