    Hello lovely people! Hoping someone can help me on this...

    Just kerbed the NSR wheel of my car trying to get out of the way of an ambulance on a blue light run - no one to blame but myself though! It's only minor kerb rash, however given the unique colour and very fine diamond cut of the blade tips, am I going to struggle to get an OEM finish to any repair? Anybody had experience of refurbishing a rotor off any Audi?

  3. I repaired my Avus alloys on an S4. I got hold of silver spray and clear lacquer from Wurth. Make sure you let the silver dry (at least overnight) and give it a light key with Scotchbrite before lacquering otherwise it goes gray where ther is loose silver 'dust' on the surface or where it is not fully dry.

    Wurth supply the 'standard' silver paint and lacquer to VAg/BMW/Merc. Not sure about non standard silvers.

    Hope this helps.

    These will be slightly different to deal with as they are diamond cut.

    Thanks guys. Read elsewhere that a replacement wheel is only £145 so may do that if a mobile repair company can't get it right?

    Alloy Wheel Refurbishment by Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists

    These guys, based in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, can do this.

    I have a 2011 S3 Black Edition which had a kerb mark on the NSR wheel on purchase, sorted perfectly at Reinventing the Wheel.

    You know you're onto a good thing when you turn up to see an Aston Martin V8 Vantage in the workshop having both rears refurbished!

    If you are within striking distance of Gloucestershire I recommend them. If not, it can be done, and I hope you get it sorted.

    I've got a horrible feeling I'm going to be buying a new wheel...

    Thanks for the help Blacksheep, unfortunately I'm nowhere near Tewkesbury however if they can sort my wheel I might have to make the trip! It is just on the very edge of the rim so hopefully can simply be machined out... Also I've heard N8 may be able to assist?
    the only issue is that Audi diamond cutting is so fine, unlike most, and the matte finish.

    See it really isn't that bad just hope it can be saved! Guessing a spot repair just machining the rim may work!
