    Default Gutted... Kerbed Alloys......

    Really unhappy ATM!

    I noticed a couple of weeks ago that one of my alloys had been marked at some point on my travels .....


    Then today I've gone to turn around in doing so I've driven towards a dropped kerbed which I thought was lower than it actually was and kerbed about 30% of the OSF alloy.

    Now my set of 4 un-marked XP2's are ruined, I know there only alloys but it's guttering to think they were almost factory perfect 5 secs before a stupid driver error.

    Any ideas on how to get them looking half decent agian?

    I managed to go two whole years with my Diamond Cut alloys on my Mondeo even though had a slight mark being second hand so wasnt too fussed but these I didn't want to do it too, and haven't managed a year.

    I know the feeling. I have a set of 18" Chrome Dotz on my vec that i bought brand new for £800. Kept em perfect for a year until one day caught the curb due to an idiot coming fast at me on the wrong side of the road around a corner. Scuffed both alloys pretty bad and with them being chrome, im told they are cheaper to replace than refurb :/. Was gutted!
