    Archenemy.co.uk (Phil) - Arch rolling

    For anybody who is needing to get there arches rolled or flared I throughly recommend archenemy.co.uk...

    I contacted a number of places to get quotes but was really happy with the recommendations that I had heard about archenemy and the examples of work I had seen I decided to give them a go.

    I needed to get my rear arches rolled as the tyres were slightly rubbing when cornering at speed dude to the wide rims and lowered suspension. I got in contact with archenemy and was contacted by one of theirs agents a proper nice bloke called Phil.

    Phil quoted me 110 for the job which would be done at my home, this consisted of:

    Roll a pair of arches 90
    Seam sealer removal rear lip 10
    Trim & refit rear arch liner 10
    Total 110

    Phil was very flexible with dates and times which made it easy for me to get time for the job to be booked in. Over the past few days I've been in email contact with Phil and I decided to get it booked for today the morning of 04.07.2012. The job in total took about 2 hours which involved Phil setting up getting the job done, packing away and having a cuppa! You do need to be there to meet the agent once they arrive to discuss your requirements, but only need to be available once he is doing the job. I was outside the whole time chatting away as he worked talking about upgrading his car to an E60 touring

    If any of you guys are needing to get your arches rolled or flared I thoroughly getting in contact with archenemy.co.uk The agent I used phil doesn't normally come out as far a Northampton unless he has more than 1 job iirc he is based in Hertforshire. The best thing to do is get a quote from archenemy and an agent local to you will get in contact...

    Heres a few pics from todays arch rolling...

    Nope. Will take a picture once the car/wheel/arch is clean and you can compare it to a normal E46 arch...

    There is a scab which will need to be touched up with some paint but its on the lip at the top so you can't see it from normal angles. This was because of a rust patch not because of overheating or bad rolling technique...
