    Default 19" Alloy - For the scrappie - Help needed !

    Hi all,

    Well, took the Mrs to the hairdresser this evening and parked the car as per normal. So, as I pulled off I heard that horrible srapping noise and just new what had happened. 1 Scrapped alloy. The worse thing is that this is the new alloy that I waited 3 months for ! Oh, I am so not happy.

    Anyway, I am after 1 NEW 19" VX Alloy - anybody help with price etc ? ANDYVEC - where are you !!!

    Cheers guys and gals.

    There are no refurbishers around here at all, and I've been told by the dealer's bodyshop when I had to have the original replaced that due to the fact that there are two slightly different shades of paint and finish on the wheel, the only way of doing it is to have all 4 refurbed to the same finish.

    I had my toora refurbed by JJ Smart repair, he can match anything, toora won`t give the paint code but he did a brilliant job of it, un noticable, might be worth sending your wheel to him, he does a club discount as well ...

    A full refurb on an alloy is around £50.00 ... He can spray or powder coat them. My toora was reshaped and colour matched for £40.00. It was a very awkward place though, right on the rim ...He is worth a call, great service.

    There is a link in the approved dealer section .....
