Alloy Wheel refurb

Could anyone recommend someone who could refurb a set of diamond cut alloys(actually on Bmw)?

I had Chris of Exel Wheels refurbish the four wheels on my wife's 2016 718S Boxster, a year ago.
The car was subsequently detailed, and the detailer said that the wheel refurb was the best he'd ever seen.
Chris comes to you, changes the wheels to replacements so you can still drive the car, does the work and comes back and reverses the process.

No, they were the standard wheels for the model, Chris advises paying extra for different wheels when buying new as they tend to be better quality than the bog-standard ones.
 
But ask Chris. I would trust him. If he says he can do diamond cut, I'm sure he can, and well.

David, 
 
Thanks for the recommendation, just got the wheels back from Chris and extremely pleased with the results.
 
He did a superb job on the diamond cut alloys on my BMW MSport. Much better than a previous refurb done by a specialist company in Nottingham. The quality of the finish is exceptional and a thoroughly nice chap to deal with. 


 
Regards
