Alloy insurers say no to change, BMW say £850 + tyre swap. Chasing council now but don't hold out them paying.

As you've already personally proven they're not fit for purpose, it seems like throwing good money after bad to me.

Fingers crossed you won't strike any more pot holes in future.

I'm going to have to do my best!

Insurers asked for a photo of damage. As it is on the inside of the alloy I went out to get the car jack out to ramp it up and photograph at lunchtime. Opened the boot to get the jack and................

No car jack, just the pump and gloop! Doh! I'm putting my schoolboy error down to being stressed about the car.

Getting alloys swapped tomorrow.

Not getting alloys swapped today. After removing one of the damaged ones they noted that the shade is different. Seems there are two shade of grey (not fifty I hasten to add) to my alloys and they had the other!

Hey ho
