    So, somehow I’ve managed to take a tiny chunk out of the black forged alloys. I have no idea how or when but it’s definitely there!

    Has anyone else been careless enough  to damage the forged alloys (and is willing to own up to it!) and if so, any good recommendations for a repair?

    Thanks all!

    Gutted for you, I’ve been lucky so far. Do you have a repair service called Chipsaway, they are supposed to do a good job.

    Thanks @bobcat. I’ll look them up now and see what they can do. Might post a before / after picture if it goes ahead.

    If it´s only a tiny chunk I think a dab of black paint would be sufficient.

    @Straggler – I’d always know it was there though!

    Iv used chips away on my previous Fords, I can also recommend them. That been said I took out insurance with ford for this MK3 for the alloys and bodywork. Money well spent I think.

    I kerbed mine 2 weeks after delivery, I was absolutely spewing. Don’t know where you are in the country but I got mine fixed at a place called Skidz in Falkirk ( central Scotland) . Good as new and only cost £35, I was well chuffed. There will be plenty of places that’ll fix it so you never knew it was there. I also thought about the paint thing but after thinking about it , why spend what we’ve all spent on the cars and scrimp on something that as soon as someone who’s ‘ into ‘ cars looks at they will notice it plus you’ll always know it there. My eyes were drawn to it every time I looked , I had it fixed within 6 days.

    £50 at Chipsaway and it looks good as new – I literally couldn’t find the repair. Will post some pictures up when it’s not pissing it down outside!

    Thanks for the advice as always guys.
