    A3 Black Edition alloy request.

    Hi guys, I'm a bit new to this so bear with me. Kerbed my A3 Black edition in the snow last week and needing one new alloy, anyone know where I can get my hands on a second hand replacement as i don't want to pay Ł450 to the local dealer?

    Bet there's no many around yet, anyone who's upgraded on theres will be selling 4 I guess. Your only hope is for a car that's had a smash and there's odd wheels available. You need to just sit in front of ebay for a few weeks or hope someone on here can help.

    Is it def beyond repair? Some wheel specialists can work wonders on buckles etc....

    I presume Ł450 is for the set?? Can't you just order one new alloy on its own?

    Surely a decent repair centre will sort that wheel for around Ł40 - Ł60 if its a typical kerb job?

    Yeah, as do most alloy wheel centres, think a new wheel isn't necessary unless you completely mangled it

    you not been to Audi lately? Ł450 is per wheel so thats Ł1800 a set.

    I think they are priced stupidly high to stop people speccing up cars on the cheap.

    Its been quite a few years since I needed a new wheel but can't believe a fairly standard audi wheel is so much now - should of known better though!
