  • refurb on alloys by vauxhall?

    ive just got my black corsa vxr with 18" antharcite alloys. When i got the car all four wheels looked and are very scuffed. I mentioned it to the sales guy and today spoke to the general manager. He told me they cant be repaired or refurbed because of the colour and cos they are diamond cut, is this true or is he fobbing me off?

        Depends which Astra VXR wheels - later one's are Diamond Cut, have the appearance of tiny record grooves.
        Apparently they can be repaired but maybe not by all refurbers

            I was told by a wheel refurber that £90 was the going rate for Diamond cut and that there was a company in NI (New Wheels or NU Wheels iirc) which specialized in doing so (60k lathe just for doing this apparently?)

                  The diamond cut wheels can be refurbed, but there are very few companies around that can do it. We;ve had one done and it was 99% perfect, only very close up could you see a slight variation in the diamond cut compared to the standard wheel.

                    If people get good work done on the Diamond cut wheels it might be worth recommending the outfit that did the work in the Region section to help others out?

                        When i got my vxr it had a kerbed alloy and they they said oh yeah we can sort it drop it off thursday. Went back at 5 and they could not do it because its a polished alloy which is then lacquered and thats it. And they could not do it.
                        so after vauxhall took a month to try and find a campany to do it and failed i phoned a company up which was local and he wanted 80 to refurb it. He took the wheel one morning and by 5 that night he had got rid of the marks by polishing the wheel back and then lacquered the wheel up and baked it. You cant tell he did it and vauxhall paid for it to be done.

                        The company that did it are called ruderimz

                            Go down there when its really busy and have a go at the lowest ranked person there and make a massive scene about how bad the service has been from them and how you want it sorted now or get you a new wheel
