Repairing Scraped Wheels and Speaker Buzz

I just scraped my wheels (19" '04 M3) on a curb and I wanted to know if anyone had something similar repaired. I'm just looking for info such as: what was done, how did it look after repair, are there any special coatings on the wheel that I should be aware of, how much did the job cost, etc.

Also, I have started to notice a buzz (or rattle) from the glove box that is definitely radio (speaker) related. I haven't dug any deeper yet, so has anyone experienced the same thing?

We have a guy come fix our wheels at the dealership (for customers, used cars, etc) He charges like $300 for a set (depending on how bad the wheel was damaged). The wheels look like new when he is done with them. I'd see if there is anyone your dealer could recommend for you. As for your speaker rattle, I had a 03 M3 in the other day, with what you are discribing, there is a service bulletin out for speaker rattle that involves adding foam squares to your door panel to limit the amount of door panel vibrations....also check the actual speaker grill (that ended up being replaced to get this guys rattle to go away).

There is an EXCELLENT write-up on repairing your curbed wheels on the S14.net website.. I'm searching for it

LongHairedHippy: Just let him die out. The odds are on that he won't reproduce, so the problem will take care of itself
