My car is going back to the lease company next week and one of the alloys is scuffed so I'm after a cheap refurbisher near to Bolton, has anyone any advice please?

With a cheap refurbisher you risk the wheel ending up even worse; I would take the hit from the lease company for the minor damage, than risk a much bigger hit for a buggered up refurb.

How much do think they will charge?

VW charged me £40 which was cheaper than the diamond cut refurb I would have had to get done

My alloys are normal ones so if they bill me £40 I can live with that. The bumper has some small scratches hopefully that will be put down to wear and tear.

​If it's just in the clear lacquer on your bumper get some T cut scratch remover and gently buff it out. Then polish the bumper with some colour turtle wax or equivalent. It's only a problem if it's removed the paint underneath. Cost you less than a tenner and about 30 mins of your time.

I've used AWR in Bury before and they did a great job for about £40 but think it depends on the wheel finish. They are close to the Ford/Vauxhall dealerships. Always get my tyres from them too as a well established local business with competitive prices.

Do you think I'd get billed for it if I didn't sort it?

​I think you will most guidelines for lease wear and tear would be OK with a single mark on its own. That would be classed as damage. Chips away would charge between 60 and 80 quid to do that. It will be cheaper than the charge from the lease company. I've had lease vehicles for the last 10 years and it's always cheaper to get it done your self.

I couldn't find "The Can Can" but I found "Refurbishment for Up to Four Alloy Wheels at Autoworld" £38 for 1 wheel but I'm sure there's a £10 or £15 off code somewhere so should cost £23 or £28 for wheel refurb which is good.
