Colour coding results

Hello all thought I'd share my colour coding results as I'm over the moon with them ! It makes so much of a difference! I got it done at Honda springfield bodyshop in the north east.
It was 528 but as I'm planning on keeping the car 4 years + I wanted it done perfect and to come with warranty and free courtesy car etc for the few days it was in. They also said they had done loads of them before so gives a piece of mind as I'm not worried about adhesion to the plastic and when washing it etc.
Anyway here are the photos!

They aren't Altimos. Altimos come in 18's only I know as I have them on my car

Colour Coding does look nice though! Civics should have been like that from the factory back in 2006.

I went to them yesterday with some prices... That 500+ hurt my ears, so just walked away, but lovely results though! But I dare say could be cheaper elsewhere with a similar result

Got mine booked for the end of June at a body shop someone recommended near me. Hope it ends up looking as neat as yours does.

It really does make a hell of a difference. Well done!

Thanks for all the comments still can't decide on wheels!

Littlejohnny23 'they didn't see me coming' that was a quote through by email. Every Honda garage in the north east uses this springfield repair centre whether warranty work or whatever. And that's standard price through all NE dealers, seen quotes from 400-1000 from main dealers. I know reputable bodyshops who've said 350 minimum so it's personal choice
