So, my wife (bless her heart) took my car to get a cioke...and now one of my new M6 aloy rims is missing a chunk out of it! Am I buying a new wheel, or is there something I can do to fix it? the damage is about three inches long and about a 1/16" deep.

I have used this shop to repair alloys off my Volvo, a little far away, but great work.

I have never delt with this company, but I learned about them from another BMW Forum.

I have also used them. They call the missing chunk a "divot". They are located a few miles away from Bethlehem PA, the old home of Bethlehem Steel, so there is a lot of metalworking expertise in the geographic area.

thanks for the info! do you guys know what they do to repair them? do they "dip" the rim? How much do they charge? Thanks fellas!
