My first choice would have been to diamond cut as this was the OEM finish. I did some research and showed some pics to the wheel refurb technician, plus the manager. They advised that diamond cutting my wheels their current state was unlikely to result in a long lasting finish. I was also advised that the recessed/hidden rim design meant there were areas that the cutting tool would be unable to reach. I reluctantly opted for a powder coat in a colour to match OEM. If it doesn't work out, I'll look to buy some new wheels later, but at least they'll be an improvement on their current state.
I was encouraged looking at some of their work and how busy they were. They had some very high end vehicles in the workshop, many customised BMW AMGs and a 4 day old BMW monster 4x4 where the owner scraped a wheel the day he collected the vehicle! I was told BMW had booked the car in to get the wheel sorted for an unnamed VIP client. Football player I reckon
