Afternoon all,

I've decided to freshen up the M5 starting with a wheel refurbishment, I think Lepsons have a good rep in achieving the original shadow chrome finish.

Has anyone used them, any experiences to share?

I also see they're right next to KDS detailing so I'm tempted to try and get the beast detailed at the same time.

Has anyone here used KDS for a detail, Kent is a fair trek for me, but happy to travel for a good job, and they seem to have a first class reputation.

Cheers
Rich

Have a look on M5board, there's threads on who can and can't do shadow chrome.

That dosen't need thinking about to be honest,
KDS will do a fantastic job of your car, they will also get Lepsons to refurb your wheels
For you while they have your car.
KDS have doner wheels to put on your car whilst Lepsons have them.
So you get a full seamless service, simples !!

I fully recommend both KDS and Lepsons. Money's where my mouth is, but I've also seen a lot of KDS' work on other peoples' cars and it always exceeds expectations.

I recently treated my Z4MC to a Gold paint correction at KDS and Lepsons refurbed the wheels at the same time. You won't find better outfits.

Looks a cracking job, decision made, will drop them an email to see when I can drop the car in.

Thanks all.

it will be well worth the trip Rich, KDS are at the top of their game. They have always looked after my cars from a service to full wetsand, my cars have had all the KDS services. Their work is outstanding, also I had my wheels done in shadow chrome by Lepsons.

Sideways Rich. A couple of years ago I had an E92 M3, which had terrible orange peel. I spoke to Kelly at KDS, who told me I could have the car wet sanded. Whilst the car was there he noticed some very slight scuffs on the alloys and recommended Lepsons to refurb them. The job on both counts was utterly magnificent.

I posted some details and pics about the work on PH. See below:

Funny all these recommendations for KDS.

I read some really good things about them on forums, and in magazines. Wanting both my M5 and X5 correcting I gave them a call.

Still waiting for a ring back; from February!!!!

I've been meaning to update this for a while with the results, I think they speak for themselves.

KDS were absolutely first class, I had very high expectations with all the good press they receive on PH however they surpassed those.

Their attention to detail (no pun intended :-)) was exceptional as was their customer service, if you're deliberating don't, just do it!

Some pics;

Do KDS deal with dents?
Do KDS deal with stone chips ? How do they deal with them ?

Thanks :-)

Would be surprised if they didn't, they touched up a couple of stone chips on the front end of mine.
