    Hi All

    I recently hit one of Glasgow City Council's finest potholes and have knackered one of my wheels.

    Prices so far from dealers for a new one is £560 and £606.

    I also need to get the rear wheel repaired (its scuffed so just needs a minor repair) and a new tyre for the front.

    Is there anywhere cheaper to get new genuine wheels or does it have to be a dealer?

    Picture attached is same but not my wheel.

    I'd keep an eye out on eBay and see if anything suitable comes up, or try a wanted ad on the classified section on here. Not sure if this is the same as yours:

    There's also quite a few similar wheels with light scrapes on them - could get one of those and get it refurbed the same time you get the rear one done. Would still work out a lot less than buying a new one from Audi.

    Other option is to try and claim against the cost of the damage from the council........

    Cheers for that info.

    That looks like my wheels. I will check the part number.

    I am planning on putting a claim in to the council.
