    After finally getting time to finish off refurbing my RS4 reps I fitted them to the car yesterday, the wife used the car this morning to take my son to school & I get a text 10 mins ago to say she has scrapped one of the wheels!!!!!:banghead:

    I think i may have to do what one of the other members on here did & Ban her from the car.

    Worst feeling, at least my alloys lasted 2 months before 3 of them got scrapped in a space of a week!

    Sandra, your right - not a happy bunny today!

    Jojo, The only good thing is I am glad I didn't pay alot to refurb them ( just my time & effort & rattle cans) , if I had spend money on getting them powder coated I prob would have hit the roof!

    I still can't believe it - they have only been on the car less than 24 hours.

    Still looks nasty, she has sent you a pic so that by the time she returns you will be nice and calm, lol. I think a little ban from the car may be in order, and also make her help with the refurb.

    I was just thinking how the other half wouldn't even bother calling me up, she'd just leave it until I spotted it! lol

    When I get my next set of mint condition alloys I'm going to... 1) fit them, 2) go for a drive, and then 3) run all four along the highest kerb I can find.

    Might as well get the pain out of the way sooner rather than later, because kerbing your alloys is always a matter of 'when' not 'if'.
