Dear all, I just wanted to inform you that I have found a really great alloy wheel refurbishment company called Diamond Styling Ltd, they are based in Sevenoaks Kent, I had my original BRABUS Monoblock VI split rims, the wheels were split apart, stripped, dipped, painted, diamond cut, then lacquered, they have come out fantastically! I had been searching to find a company that can carry out this specialised Diamond Polishing (cutting) service and I am so happy I chose Diamond Styling, all the guys there were very helpful especially Paul who took a lot of time out to explain the complete process to my two sons and I, I am very, very happy with the finished result, so if any of you are thinking of getting their wheels done then I would highly recommend Diamond Styling.

In this last Picture below you can see the before and afte finish, the wheel on the left had been previously painted including the face of the wheel, I wanted to have the original BRABUS factory finish where the face of of the wheel was also Diamond Polished, you will notice that the face of the wheel on the right has more light reflection than the other wheel on the left!

Cost of work

Can I ask how much they charged and how long they took for the job?

They cost me £150.00 per wheel and they had the wheels for 4 Days, if you book they can also keep your car instead of sending the wheels to them, I think the cost varies according to the size of the wheel, my wheels are 20" if your wheels are a smaller size I believe the costs are less.

What is the guarantee on this finish, most firms will only guarantee it for 3 months

Your wheels are clearly more valuable then mine lol.

We do have a member here from amazing-alloys.com who might have done a better deal for you. If I could do without my car for a week I would have had my 2 fronts cleaned up

Would it not have been cheaper to buy new wheels ?

No, because the Genuine BRABUS 20" Monoblock VI retail at around £6,000 for 4 (excluding Tyres!)

Wheels worth £4k! Do you ever worry someone in the know will pinch them?

(especially now our friends at Halfords helpfully supply the part needed by Mr Scum to get past the locking nuts!).

For £4000 Malcom you could have bought new ones


I bought them cheap brand new,,so now I have 3 sets of wheels, the AMG111, the 600 and the 2 piece AMG's.

I love falling over them in the garage though one set are hanging on the wall,

I came across this topic some time ago when I was looking for a company to refurbish the AMG alloys on our 1997 320SL, I initially sent Diamond Styling an enquiry email and then phoned them a week later when they hadn't replied; they didn't reply to my phone call either so my business went to Pristine.

Getting a few quotes for wheel refurb, is this finish known as a 'diamond cut'?

Thanks,

Yes, but just get them painted in sparkle silver otherwise they will go again in about a year.

This is where the fun starts. I cannot see that wheel in all the MB books. Is there a number cast on the inside somewhere
