I use wet and dry 1200. Gets rid of the rash but goes through the paint. Once dirty again you can’t tell. No point getting refurbished coz only get scratched week after.

Keep it clean and laquer over it to stop water getting under it.

2 things don't park so close to the kerb and also get alligator rims to protect. And only wash them with soap and water no chemical

It happened when another driver decided to cut me up so forced me up the kerb and for washing them I used a ph neutral wheel cleaner

I have the same sort of damage. It took quite a large chunk out of it. I've had quotes of about £70-90 to get it repaired, if it wasn't so big I'd do it myself.

I've had a quote of £50 from a company that works with the dealership for the repair
