Thumbs up Son Tran appreciation thread - curb rash repair!

I finally was able to get in touch with Son Tran the wheel repair Magician to repair many curb rashes on my Volks. He came by with a friendly, no rush attitude as we were going over the damages on my wheels. We had a nice chat while he was working on the repair, and his phone kept on ringing all the time, but that didn't seem to bother his concentration and focus a bit. His skills is a work of art and the repair has turned my wheels like new again! I would highly recommend this guy to all of you seeking wheel repair! Highly skillful and very easy going personality! And the price will be more than good enough if you mention you're from Bimmerpost!
