    OH NO, PLEASE SAY I HAVEN'T....

    Just curbed my alloy due to some tit in a merc CLK Cab in a carpark being stupid and lairy, was watchin to see what stupid thing he was going to do next and must have just gone too wide on the bend out....

    CRUNCH.....

    I'll not repeat what I said at the time.... Does anyone know any good places to get my wheel refurbed? I'm in the North West but visit Kent alot.

    Or if there are good mobile firms etc??

    I think I have OCD as its driving me nuts and everytime I look out at the car on the drive it stands out liek a sore thumb.

    Ouch, sorry to hear that mate. Got any pics of it? Not so we can point and make jokes out of it, only so i/we can see the extent of the damage.

    I'll ask TuningWerkes as i'm going there tomorrow to get VAGCOM hooked to see if they know any good places.

    Thanks all for your helpfull responses, I have located a place in Liverpool which are going to repair the wheel next week hopefully. Been quoted £30 -£40.

    Its not too bad, like a big scuff around about a third of the rim right on the edge next to the tyre.

    I'll try and get some before and after photo's.

    I'll tell you what Eagle, whilst you're fixing the squeak in my door with a hammer, I'll have a go at at repairing your wheel, with my polly filler and a tin of grey Dulux Emulsion paint?

    No i never used them.. I would go to the dealers and ask them who they use.
    I ended up going to Stockport to get mine sorted, quite a good job really.

    Hope you get the wheels sorted matey
