Damn... Thanks for the empathy! Helps me feel a tiny bit better knowing I'm not the only person who did this on their brand new car...I can share your pain. Curbed my right passenger the other day. I couldn't blame that one on my wife =(
Hurts to even think about it.
Not too deep - after wiping off some of the debris it doesn't look super bad, but definitely some material was removed. I've got one more wheel repair shop I'm gonna get an estimate from, they do more luxury/premium/high-end cars.How deep is the gash? Can't quite tell my the pic. Is it just the finish layer or did you lose some chunks too?
I curbed my right front on my G80. If I remember correctly, a local shop charged me around $180 to fix it like new. Don't know if the G70 has the overhead camera view that my G80 has, but I don't go anywhere around curbs without the overhead view on since my screwup.F*CK!!!
Turning into a parking lot and didn't see the f*cking low slung curb.

I should note I have front wheel insurance! When I dinged my wheel, I played around with thinking I would put the dinged wheel in the trunk, using it as a spare until I heared I couldn't do that because of the staggered wheels. While thinking of doing this, I saw a brand new front wheel on ebay for about $225 and bought it. Been thinking of selling it, but it sits in the garage now and IF I were to ding either front wheel, I would have an immediate replacement. INSURANCE???When I'm pulling in to park, I've always got my eyes glued to the side/rear cameras when coming in close to a curb. But for this situation I think I just didn't realize just how wide my car is.... I guess I've been so used to driving beaters... :c
