    Ooops










    I was going out straight from work, girlfriend met me at work, I drove the car out of the multi story to avoid any accidents.

    Later she came to pick me up and was waiting out side the pub. 'i think I have just caught the wheel on the curb' .......the irony.

    My worst nightmare too, especially with my five month old Star alloys! One of the wheels from my previous set were kerbed by my wife too. Not suggesting there's a trend or anything, but at least she owned up straight away ...

    I can recommend a repairer just outside Hemel Hempstead in Herts - click here for their website. They did a fab job on the aforementioned wheel before I sold the set on eBay.

    Brighton Audi did an excellent job on my TT for me - not sure of the price but think it is about 60 per wheel.

    I'm southampton way so I'm affraid I can;t help. But my local whicked wheels repaired onoe of my CH's perfectley.

    I would guess brighton Audi either had the rim resprayed by their own body shop or used the local whicked wheels. Southampton Audi damaged my mates TT rims twice and used the body shop both times to correct it.

    moral of this thread - never let your missus drive your car unless you are blind drunk or sedated!! I always feel on edge when she drives, well, given thats its at a salvagers, used to drive my a3.

    She did a similar blonde maneouvre one night when she picked us up from town - she made it all the way back and was driving into my drive and managed to catch the back wheel on a big metal gate hook and put a massive dent in the middle of one of the arms of the alloy......lovely stuff.

    looks like your missus decided to do a proper job with that curb

    They're actually based in Flaunden, near Bovingdon in some units near a farm. Took a while for me to find it! I got a 16" SE wheel refurbed for just 35 cash, and the repair quality was excellent.

    my girlfreind did exactly the same! i'd had a few too many so she drove having had none at all then clipped a kerb at 50mph! - and after a 20min lecture on not kerbing them!!!!! luckily one of my mates is a mobile wheel refurbisher.

    A lot of swearing and shouting took place on the journey home!

    Thankfully my gf doesn't drive but if she ever manages to learn and I ever let her drive my car then the rules will be simple - you kerb the alloy, you replace it with a new one, end of.

    ive never once managed to touch an alloy on anything thatll do damage, and in the 18 months my mum ran my current wheels before i got an A3 and stole them, she managed to make a newly refurbed set of TT alloys look ruined! i just dont get how though! i would refurb them, but ill be changing wheels soon, so ill sell them back to her :P
