A DBA paint code?

No-one knows it sadly.

The powder coat vs wet paint is a fun topic, lol. Like nick I was dubious about powder but was out voted when I asked on the B35.

People seem to have had both done without problems.

£200 sounds very cheap. Normal guide is £100 per wheel powder or paint (obviously depends on your contacts)

CBA original is nearer the paint code of the skirts I believe?

Powder coating is ok depending on what temperature they heat your wheels for the powder to bake on. If they heat them up to much then yes there is the potential for them to crack and fail but if done at the right temperature then they are fine. I had mine done about five years ago and I haven't had any issues and that's with around half a dozen track days.

I always found power coating lasts longer than paint but each to there own.
