    My car needs a paint work due to paint scratches, alloy wheels and touch up paint. Any recommendation for body paint work. Have u heard about Chips away or Revive uk? Are they good? Thanks for helping.

    I haven't personally used Ital (thankfully, I guess!) but I work just along the road from them. When you first drive up to their place, you kinda think 'back street, man and a spray can' thoughts. And, it still looks that way :D
    But, the finish and quality of paintwork I have seen roll out of there is astounding. I watched a 2008 911 C4 get unloaded from a truck after a bus had gone all down it's side and left some fetching red stripes along it's pearl white body! About a week or so later it was out the front, ready to collect. I had a nosy around it and the paint finish was like glass, absolutely flawless! So, I would have no hesitation whatsoever in taking my car to them, and neither should you! :)

    I'd rather have an excellent finish sprayed in a shanty town than be paying extra for lots of fancy glass and chrome reception areas .... ;)

    Tony Fowkes in Park Royal. A recent piece of feedback . No commercial connections.

    If anywhere has a shiny reception with shiny receptionist (unless they are bald), money is being spent on the wrong things.

    Ital can do all that, give them a ring or pop in, Gary who runs the place is ones of the worlds most approcable people.
