    Knew you should have been allowed them wheels.
    Give them to before you really hurt them.

    This is how you should park

    I should mate. I really don't deserve them. I've let them down, and more importantly, I've let myself down.

    I'm going to leave them as they are. Because if I get them refurb'd and then kerb them again it'll push me over the edge!

    Could park on the curb, which will make you further away from the traffic and stop the mirror removal and side scraping..................but then someone might key your car..........ahhhhhhhhhhhh

    Sad! just put newly refurbed alloys on mine, pulls over to find a cd, thinks mind the kerb so turns away from kerb a bit and wham, 2 days later man in a van fixing at 7am in mornin, wife says "you cant do that everytime you kerb it" yeah you wanna bet. Gets to work and mate who just shelled out 22k on an A3 Quattro with rotors walks in with a long face and says "dog jumped on me and i smashed the kerb" which made us laugh and made me feel better, kerbs, i hate them.

    Got to admit it's the worse feeling for us wheel whores!

    I've gone through 7 sets of 18" rims and tyres over 10yrs and 115k miles on my Passat Estate! Not one set has ever survived unkerbed courtesy of my other half!!
