    fwiw we have used repair kits that you'd get off the shlf from the likes of Halfords but from our trade supplier. To be honest, for light parking scrapes etc these work very well.

    You get some sand paper, special filler, generic silver paint and teh odd bit and bob in the kit. Thes eare easy to use, really only does takes a few minutes to do a repair and it most certainly takes ones eye off the damaged area.

    The generic silver paint quoted by DSK is called Wurth Silver paint as used by most alloy manufacturers for German cars. Good to have a touch up stick of it .

    I just looked at this product online, it looks pretty good, I was about to spend £180 (quote from Chips away) to get all my alloys fully repaired but, I think I could get away with just doing two of them now as two are not that badly damaged! Thanku forum!
