    Unhappy Gutted!

    Since I bought my car, I've been soooo careful about my wheels. I've never kerbed them, and have been meticulous at looking after them.

    Giving the car a quick clean a couple of days ago, and knelt down to give the front offside a clean. Gutted to find this.....




    The white was actually paint! I can't work out whats happened. I can only think that somehow, someone has hit the wheel.
    The paint came off, but it's scratched the wheels and taken the paint and laquer off. I was gutted. It's more cosmetic than physical damage. I've done a bit of a bodge job with some silver touch up paint, but it's pretty cr@p. Nobody else drives my car and I'm seriously puzzled.
