    right got the 19s on my car and when i bought it at the dealer i noticed one had a very tiny bit of kerb damage and so they got the wheel sorted no problem.
    Couple of days back I clipped something which has caused a similar amount of damage.
    My local dealer seems to think these are diamond cut wheels and will have to be sent to a specilist wheel shop.
    Are they diamond cut though .. no mention of it when I asked for the original fix from the selling dealer.
    if anyone can shine any light on this i would be much obliged.

    They probably are diamond cut although a photo would help.

    They are a real pain as they seem to corrode naturally in about a year anyway with MB paying out for refurbs because of the complaints :bannana:

    Any decent wheel refurb place (I use Lepsons) can repair them and some now offer a guarantee on diamond cut finishes which they didn't do a couple of years ago!

    thanks fellas.
    went to three places for some prices in and around chester and not one of them advised getting them re diamond cut.

    The wheelspecialist
    wants £408 for a black chrome finish or £456 for full chrome finish ,as near to diamond cut as I can get.

    F1 alloys want £395 for a stright silver paint job
    and
    smart repair company want £312 for a stright silver spray job.

    anyone had any dealings with any of the above or know if they offer discount.
    I liked the wheelspecalist set upbut his price seems fair bit higher than one of the others and cash is abit tight at the mo.
