    Default 306 alloys

    I've just picked up my GTi6 and hate the scuffed alloys. The previous owner(s) have curbed all four wheels. They have obviously rotated the wheels and managed to scrape all of them over time!!
    Some scratches are superficial, but others are very deep
    I think the previous owners must drive like my mother! I mean the drivers who know they are near enough to the curb by "feeling" their way towards it.
    Can anyone recommend a reputable place to repair them?
    Cheers

    Those wheels are hard to scratch too, they're shaped inwards I think in order to avoid scratching so the previous owner must havereally hugged those gutters.

    I scratched one of mine on a rock wall at home, which was just the most stupid thing to do. Swapped it with the spare. But geez, they are a good looking design.

    Just get them repaired and repainted.
    Should cost a few hundred but they will look as good as new

    Try Donnelons in Box Hill i got a rim reapaired there years ago.
    If not most competant panel beater shop can sand the wheel down and repaint it in a metallic alloy colour.
