    Black Edition wheels leaking air!

    I'm having a problem with one of my rear wheels constantly losing air. There isn't a puncture so it must be the fitting of the tyre. Has anyone else had a similar problem. I'd take it to the dealer and get them to do it, but I suspect some major 'sucking of teeth' would take place. The car is only a few months old, so I don't see why I should be paying out to have the tyre refitted.

    Surely that is covered under warranty?

    Well, took it to a different place and they found a screw in the tyre. Fixed the puncture but took a big chunk out of the alloy and scratched it around the rim. They haven't argued and are willing to pay for a refurb, but I'm a bit worried that they won't be able to get an accurate colour match.
