One of our Turbines had an unexpected encounter with a kerb a few weeks ago :(

Damage was pretty bad, and before I could get this one fixed, I bought this one on Ebay with a good tyre, with similar damage, with the intention of getting it fixed first, then swapping out our damaged one to get refurbed as well...that way I'll have a spare...a new one from Audi is around £360

The ebay purchase



A local contact sent it away to a firm called Lepsons, based in Kent. Got it back today, and what a difference :) ...paint match is spot on, and the match is perfect with the centre caps as well

If anyone else is looking for a firm to refurbish wheels, I can recommend Lepsons

Best part....only £65 including carriage both ways :D

The result

Ignore the light "scratches" in the corner of the spokes - just reflections from the flash after I'd waxed and sealed the alloy

That looks a quality job. Im going to need both fronts doing at some points and hope they come back of that standard!

Yes, they have a website, not the most useful imho
I wanted to see if they could do the bi-colour wheels.
A bit far to go from sunny Manchester though.

When I picked up my wheel, the guy had some BMW M3 wheels there for collection that had been refurbed by Prestige Wheels

Fully repaired OEM diamond cut finish, with dark inserts - probably technically very similar to the bi-colours in finish
