Default Best DC Area shop to get your wheels painted?

Staying at a buddies house with a beautiful 335i. He has done a little work to it but really wants to paint the wheels. He had a local shop but they had a bunch of bad reviews and kind of rubbed him the wrong way.

I told him I knew exactly where to ask for anything car related.

Help a North East member out?

I got my wheels powdercoated by CustomFunctionz. http://www.customfunctionz.com/

They did a great job and the price was good. But I was quoted it would take 2 weeks and it took them a month and a half. E-mails asking about status were not answered very promptly either. YMMV.

I use American stripping in Manassas, I've had a lot of parts over the past few years done by them. Usually takes them two weeks at max not matter what size.

Last time I had a wheel that needed fixing I went with these guys:

The work I saw of theirs looked pretty nice. They did a great job repairing my orange RPF1.
