Refurb E92 M3 19" wheels?

Hi,

I have badly gourged my left rear alloy, it has hit the widest part of the spoke and looks terrible

Does anyone know a really good company (pm if need be) that can refurb all my alloys to OEM??

Also are the E92 M3 alloys diamond cut?? with lacquer??, forged?? or just chromed?? I'm very confused trying to explain to those mobile wheel refurb people exactly what it is.

Thanks,

Sean

If you want to explain to the refurber tell him they are a forged wheel that has a machined and polished finish which is then clear lacquered.

They are not machined with diamonds. It's just a term that gets used for some reason.

If I were you, I would consider the one that hugehead is selling. It's almost impossible to get a good repair on the oem 19" rim

I have a 2 week old lightly damaged front, but that's no use to you.

Wicked Wheels did an amazing job on mine, £90 a wheel and they can to me.

I personally wouldn't trust the mobile companies with my M3 wheels. These wheels are diamond cut and the thought of someone refurbing them on the pavement outside my house just doesn't compare to a professional machine refurb in a proper workshop… at the same cost. Note however that these wheels can only be machine refurbed once! I used Lepsons in Gillingham who are highly recommended throughout this forum and who did a fantastic job refurbing all 4 of my wheels at £90 a corner + VAT.

www.lepsons.com

I left my car with them for 3days - it's parked inside and a milleage reading is taken. They are located directly next to the station so was ideal for me to drop the car off early and take the train into London.

Photo's of my wheels are here...

... so far they are still looking perfect as now I always park well away from the curb!
