    I get mine done for £50 a set by a chap up the road, always does a good job.

    Also I don't think you can powder coat two colours, but you can spray paint on top of the coating.

    Best try to use a industrial kind of place rather than somewhere that specialises wheels as they are always a rip of ive found.

    Edit. Ive just looked at Top Marques prices..........

    I've used these before

    Chicago Coating Company Ltd
    Weir Mill,
    Manchester Road,
    Greater Manchester
    OL5 9QA

    The guy is a bit gruff on the phone (time's money and I'm busy kind of thing)

    Charged me £60 for 4 16" crusty audi alloys blasted and coated.

    They had loads of car parts there, axles, subframes, wishbones, chassis etc
