Owwww I can feel your blood pressure rising and best keep out of that car park Angus I can't make my mind up, does this make you a more or less careful driver I wonder?Yup, that horrible noise!
I took the plunge and had all my wheels refurbed last August. They look lovely (when the car is relatively clean!), but it has made me paranoid when I am driving near any potential hazards. A particularly narrow and old fashioned multi-storey car park presented a real challenge not long ago and I was mightily relieved when we emerged unscraped !😮😁
This one I can relate to, as with anything 'new' it is very, VERY precious and cosseted as though there is never going to be another like it or able to replace it. After some time though, the gilt loses it's shine and the gold becomes brass and treated like any other old possession. The same applies with your car when you have a first ding, dent or perhaps scrape on the 'new' alloy, ahhhhh there is a cure of sorts though, as time makes all things fade and a little easier to digest, that's how I see things anyway
If not, you fix things up yourself or just hand over the dosh and get things fixed for you, like you did with your shiny new alloys..
