Google for a Alloy Wheel Repair facility near you. They are a franchise and do great work. They usually have their own self contained trailer that they repair the wheels in. Some of them even come to your house. I had 4 wheels redone for $400.

How did it come out in the end? Looked perfect?

+1 for alloy wheel repair. My local BMW dealership uses them to do the cars on their lot.

I've been putting off getting mine touched up also but plan to have Alloy Wheel Repair do it. Accidently ran over a curb and scratched my rim pretty good a while ago. Actually had to replace my tire ($235) since I warped it :mad:.

I thought they turned out perfect. They use the factory color silver and are able to even straighten wheels. Mine just had some rash on them. I am totally happy with their work and I consider myself picky.

+1 I agree, after purchasing my 128's I had the dealer refinish the factory rims for the fall/winter months. Had some serious road rash. The previous owner must have turned the PDC off at times. Now they look like new:thumbup:
