Just been out in the IS, had to parallel park in a very tight space.. ended up kerbing the rear alloy slightly...

I'm well annoyed at myself - 3 years I've had the car..

Is there anything I can do to the scrape??

I kerbed mine recently after years of avoiding them, I just swapped it out with the spare so the damage is hidden in the boot.

didnt notice any difference when i did that ian. you're getting rid soon anyway arent you?

you could get it refurbed for around £40 or they may be able to just repair the scrape cheaper?

Could get the tyres swapped between kerbed wheel and spare.

Then put kerbed wheel in the boot. That'd sort your tyre concern.

That sounds too obvious... Am i missing something :)

I did this, and took it down to Lexus, and they swapped the tyre over with the spare for free!

They do look after you a times.. :whistling:

I'll ignore that comment Bazza (specially as I kerbed my wheel badly driving home from work!)

With minor kerb marks, get some fine sandpaper and go over it until it's smooth, then touch up with some silver paint (can buy at Halfords, pen size pots but buy a fine brush too). Once it's dry you can then go over it with a bit of laquer. This works well on minor marks, but anything more serious get refurbed by the professionals.
