    Question Damaged Alloys

    I've got some nasty scuffs on my alloys, is there any companies that can sort them out without costing the earth?

    ...not sure what kind of job they'd do, I've heard they're a bit hit and miss to be honest.

    I remember reading somewhere in a posting on another forum ages ago something along the lines of "You get what you pay for". My mate says he knew a man who took the wheel off and did a really good repair for about 50 quid.

    Not sure about alloys, but for the paintwork, top job top company. Several members here have used them, but it's only a francise so every area has a different technician but all trained to the same standard. Always one bad one in every company.


    Ohhhhh is that meeee

    lol. I've got quite a few stone chips on the bonnet, not sure what to do if anything. I'm a bit of a perfectionist but if I start I'm not likely to stop until the whole ruddy car has been re-sprayed

    I've not had the car a week yet, I'm on holiday next week so I might get the old polishing cloth out and have a closer inspection.
