    Thanks for all the info.
    I decided and just ordered the bolts from Ricambi, local plating said $15.00 - $19.00 minimum with out seeing them. Also half of them at one time then the other half or block the car. Easier just to get Hill's and came with the alignment tool, great bonus!
    Thanks Again,
    J

    Good choice and the alignment tool is a must have. On really big wheels two of the alignment tools are essential but you will be fine with one for the smaller wheels on a 328

    @JFerrari328 I'll pop a second wheel alignment tool into your order when it ships. That'll make it a snap to put the wheels on!

    Thanks Ricambi, Just an fyi, I purchased a rear lower grill from Ricambi a year or two ago. The old one was badly scrapped/damaged from a bad tow job by the PO. The experience was seamless.
    Thanks,

    Just received my order of the Hill Engineering bolts from Ricambi - super nice quality! Use the code FCHAT and save 10%.

    Is that the price for the whole car or per bolt?

    Wow. It was 2014, but I paid $8 per bolt at a Harley specialist. Still happy. (FWIW, they did not plate the threads.)

    Chrome re-plating has gone to the "less is more" philosophy: Less quality, More cost. ;)

    I can run a bolt by there's still a Plating Shop here in the Houston Heights...I would think you would want to totally avoid plating the threads, but I guess the shop does what they want...

    As Ricambi well points out the bolts and threads do wear over time.
    I don't think replating can beat that $19 each though,

    My local plating shop does not do chrome but they do nickel plating which I actually prefer the look of to chrome. Is there a downside to nickel vs chrome?
