Kerb rash 403M rims

Hi everyone,

Anyone had kerb rash on 403M rims repaired before?

BMW told me because it's a polished rim they need to send it away for up to a week! Waiting for a quote from them today.

Would have thought mobile repair guys could nail this type of job?

Anyone have an idea of potential costs?

Had mine done recently through a local rim repair shop for around $220-$200 for a kerb rash on a machine finish for a 405M rim. Not sure if it's harder to repair on a 403M though.

Here's a pic of the before and after to give a rough scale of the level of curb rash.

Thanks ! My damage looks pretty similar

I highly recommend Edwin @ the Alloy Doctor. He does a lot of repair work on prestige wheels and I've used him twice myself over the years. Rates are more than reasonable too IMO.
