Can M6 Reps be Economically Repaired?

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
I have a bit of curb rash on one of my M6 reps and I'm wondering if it can be repaired for substantially less money than buying a new wheel. A new wheel will probably be close to $275 - $300 with shipping, mounting, and balancing. Your thoughts? Can anyone recommend a place to get it repaired in the Boston area? I've tried RimPro in Tewksbury and they wanted about $180. While that's less than $300, I'm not sure it's cost effective enough to warrant a repair over a new rim. If I could get it repaired for around $100 then I'd go for it. I'm very particular about my car (aren't we all!)... TIA!!!

It's easy to repair it on painted rims, as for polished rims, it's nearly impossible to make it look as good as new again.

paid $120 for a fix. Usually on the M6 reps they use a hyperblack and you can't even tell it was rashed.
