Unhappy Scuffed Alloy Advice...

First ever BMW... M Sport Suspension set up.
Not aware that if you go over a pot hole that the whole car can jump to the side.
The offending pot hole in place, it jumped and the n/s wheel was lightly scuffed.

Now I read on some boy racer forum that you can use 1600 to smooth it down... and use Silvo to polish it up and blend it in?

Or is there some kind of proper repair kit available?

Hesitant to use a mobile repair service if this is something I can do myself.

Thanks chaps.

Depends if the wheels are painted or polished. Also need to consider re-lacquering the repair if the wheel is polished with a clear coat lacquer...but yes all do-able and fairly simple.

Give some more details of yr wheels
