Yes, here we go, first wheel has been curbed and i knew it was coming sooner or later.

I was in bed, my mum comes in and says "ive had an accident in the car Dave" I said "F*CK OFF" and then she says she has hit the wheel. This is why i dont like her driving my car.

So i now need to find a place that can repair the wheel before 3 weeks time as the car is on a stand in Vauxhalls Ellesmere Port plant. Can anyone recommend a place in the Northwest or as close as?

Cheers, Dave

Cheers Tom, I actually found a business card for that alloy care systems. My mates dad works in Hall motors over the water and he said its the same guy who does their alloys and he does a good job. I rang him up yesterday but hes in the Lakes for the weekend and said to ring him back monday morning and he will come out in the afternoon.

Fingers crossed he can do something with it! Yes my mum is paying for the damage, she said if it comes to the crunch and wheel cant be fixed order a new wheel.

I had the guy out today from alloy care systems, says he could repair it but you would see where the repair has been as its hard to blend the colours in as its polished. He said he could recommend someone to me but it would cost £100

I see no point in gettin it repaired by them as i can get a new wheel for £110 with del!

He also recommend alloy wheel wizard who i am trying to get the phone number for now, they would cost roughly 70 quid. I have also just sent an enquiry to scuffs and scratches too.
