It had to happen................very tight exit to the NCP in Spinningfields Manchester & I scuffed my alloy. Do VW do a touch up kit, or can someone recommend anything else? It's only minor, right on the rim - but it's taken the top layer off.

Or you can try chips away. Ive used them before for wheel scuffs and they do a good job. Think they charge £50 a wheel.

It is expensive. I needed two doing on my 3 series. Unfortunately it had run flats so no spare wheel otherwise I would have had one done at a time.

I could have got a full re-furb for less but it would have meant being without a car.

That actually seems very expensive. You can get a wheel completely refurbed for that kind of money.
Can you say where? Mrs B scuffed a wheel and I contacted Chips Away who quoted £75 but were booked out for a month. I am in the southampton area but if it is a nationwide / franchise business there may be somewhere local

(PS, for those of you in the Bristol area who heard a very loud "f.....g ....ell" in May. That was Mrs B scuffing the offside rear!)

Okay - Should have been Chicago - fat finger trouble

= 18" Alloy from the Passatt. Rather than run on the space saver for the day or so the wheel will be in wheel hospital, I'll probably put the spare on from my car, Wheel and tyre are the same size and I belive the offset is the same (will check during the swap). I did check with the one you mentioned - £65. I'll check others.

Why replace the tyre?

Looks like its only the rim protector thats damaged.

If that bothers you just swap the two front tyres round.
