    Advice please:

    I've just scuffed a rear alloy on my 355. Can anyone on here recommend a wheel refurbisher in the South East ?

    Any ideas on price ?

    I'm off to cry now...

    Thanks.

    visit your nearest Audi dealer and they will do it for about £60.

    That would be Stan The Man. Refurbed a wheel on the Stradale while I was having the N-GT fitted. Took about an hour and cost is £80ish I think. The man IS a genius- by some margin the best I've ever come across. Really nice chap too, but he's also in great demand, so be prepared to go to him. Easiest way is to ask him to come while your car is at Verdis.

    Thanks for the help everybody, I'm feeling better now that I know the standards of repair are quite high.

    I'm glad I'll be able to get the job done down here though. I went up north once & it would take more than a cheap wheel repair to get me up there again :D :D

    I couldn't find the number of the chap I normally used so I searched the archives and came across this thread...

    I've now found his details again and he's just stopped by my house to do a repair on one of my 575 alloys. He's also done a wheel on my Maserati.

    Both repairs were fantastic, and he's a really nice guy too!

    I also found the rates very reasonable. He seems to do a fair amount of work for Maranello in Sevenoaks and is based in the Bromley and Tunbridge Wells area.

    His details are...

    Neil Sidaway - 07808 579277

    Tell him Leon sent you...

    Thanks,

    LWR

    In my experience, dealers just call in the mobile independents and add a premium...
