They look really nice, I regret selling my Monzas and going aftermarket tbh.

Monzas suit the car so well and really make it look classy.

Think I will sell my Vossens.

Also is it possible to paint over the diamond cut finish? 
Does it cause any issues or does there have to be any special process?

Thanks,

I’d have thought that the existing powder coat and lacquer would need completely removing first (chemical dip and then sand/bead blasting), so ensure good adhesion to the alloy of any alternative powder coat or paint finish.

cool  :smiley:
what kind of price are these from vw ? if you don't mind me asking
I was going to get mine re done but wouldn't mind a brand new set
I don't think any after market alloys suit the mk6 better than the monzas

Painfully expensive... :embarrassed:

But collecting this weekend and looking forward to seeing the difference!
If anyone want / needs a set of 17 inch Monza's (in need of refurbing but with decent tyres) let me know!
Will post pics early next week with a bit of luck........
