Re: bent wheel repair

Really???  I took my slightly damaged BBS OEM wheel from my 200Q there a
couple years ago.  He sent it to Texas for $150.  When it came back, it
looked OK, but the clear coat began peeling immediatley.  He sent it back to
Texas after telling me that the guy was really upset to hear about the
problem since he does wheels also for some really 'important' customers from
around the country.  After 2 years the clear is coming off again and the
wheel looks like s--t.  So, unless things have changed, I'll avoid that place.
