    yes uk mail are the ones
    3rdtime its happend last time was 2 wheels.
    when they send them to the hub on a decker they **** so much on there and looks like they have hit the support.

    so im haveing the replacements shipped from scotland to brum.
    and im gona pick up and drop damaged ones off.

    Lol yeah he will have done its a wheel company called wheel detail they are pretty good just a a good write up in a vag magazine, just Hyper silver is a pig to paint apparently and very now and then even any paint can react apparently I don't know anything about paint but that's what I was told :/

    I know but they were chemically stripped back to bare metal then primered even and rubbed down to get me an ultra smooth look that I wanted, they have out some real work in to these wheels it's just been unfortunate that the paint has reacted :(
