    So can anyone recommend a good mobile wheel refurbishing outlet that operates in the South East? Only one I've heard of is Wicked Wheels - anyone had any experience of these guys?

    Or am I better off just buying a new wheel?

    I would just pick up one off ebay, should get one for less than £100.

    Blazin that one is 8j, think the genuine ones on the A3 are 7.5j, don't know if that makes a difference in real terms but just thought I would say.

    Hi mate Pristine wheels are based in Milton Keynes can do a repair on your rim. They send a courier to collect the rim and colour match it. They are not cheap but the work is spot on and turn around is really quick. Once the wheel is repaired they deliver it back to you good as new. a lot cheaper than a new rim. www.pristinealloywheels.co.uk/ :redrs4:

    Hi mate Pristine Alloy Wheels are based in Milton Keynes they offer a courier collection service. They will repair your rim and return it when its repaired. They are not the cheapest but the best in the business and can do a spot on colour match and turn around is really quick. A lot cheaper than a new rim. www.pristinealloywheels.co.uk/ :blackrs4:

    My gf shares my car, so I know how you feel. Now she has learnt about "curbs" and "driving with rims" so hopefully she won't do it when I get the 19"s. :o.k:
