If it's under warranty, don't bother. Wait for it to corrode and get it replaced with a 20% contribution from you.

I've got 704m with 3 (or 4) kerbed and a year left of the manufacturer warranty. Will they corrode?. The wheels are 2700 a set ex. tyres. How hard is this to achieve?

Sorry...

Not quite merseyside but Halliwell Jones BMW in Warrington have the machine to do the diamond cut wheel refurbs. Might be better for any comeback issues/colour match issues.

Have used their bodyshop in the past with no issues.

Mine seem to corrode just by looking outside! I've had 6 replaced in 3 years.

Either wait until it happens and score a win, or until warranty runs out and pay for a repair.

Note - not many repairers will guarantee a diamond cut finish for more than 3 months. That tells you all you need to know.
