Cracked wheels....bad times

Found out last week that my 'slow puncture' was actually -

2 Cracks in my rear left alloy and
1 crack in my rear right alloy



After only owning the car for 10 days, not the happiest man in the world, but private sale, nothing I can do,

So I had them repaired and welded, not the best I know but had to do something temporarily.

Driving home saturday and my runflat light comes on the dash again, its still leaking by the looks of it!

So......off to BMW for a quote for 2 new wheels fitted and aligned, come out with a quotation of 1300, thanks for that.

Luckily my insurance company covers me for my wheels so I am having to claim through them for the damage, protected no claims luckily and only a 200 excess, hopefully have 2 brand new wheels fitted by the end of the week.

Does anyone elses BMW dealer deny all knowledge that they have ever heard of a 19" BMW alloy cracking because of run flat tyres and alloys made of cheese?!
