Hello, I have had my 2004 Treg from new. Over the years its been kerbed a few times which has resulted in various mior grazes at the wheel periphery.

My real issue is that the lacquer has lifted in areas well away from the scrapes and on all 4 wheels. This has also happened in the very centre of the wheel which is recessed and impossible to scrape. The wheels really look awful.

I think this is a manufacturing defect and in my opinion they should be replaced by VW at their expense - they disgree. Anyone here have the same problem?

Thanks

You bought a V10 Treg for the mountains of Chesire ;-)

Nice wheels BTW

Some people have had wheels replaced under the 3 year warranty but your chance for that is long gone.

There are plenty of good wheel refurbishers and as you say, you've damaged the wheels anyway so I'd just get them refettled.
