Got another one for parts. Believe it or not Westside Audi in Brisbane has parts for VW (the parts shared with Audi) cheaper than any online place I've found. I'm just getting the air filter rubber mounts (036 129 689 B) but they are cheaper through Audi than anywhere else I can find. Go figure...

Depends... Machined wheels are cheaper to repair than powdercoated or painted wheels because the dont have to worry about undercoats and colour matching, just re-machining, also depends if it's a body shop or a wheel reconditioner. Body shops are generally cheaper but they bog the wheels with body filler and then refinish where as wheels conditioners will actually fill the gutter rash with more alloy then refinish it.

Depulu wheel guys here in brissie quoted me 150 for a kerbed A8 wheel (machined face) and I have also been quoted $150 for a kerbed RS4wheel but from a body shop for bogging the damage and powdercoating the wheels black.

I guess it depends on what kind of wheels you have and what quality you are looking for in the reconditioning. Remember - You get what you pay for!

If you can afford it - Depulu every time.
