      Wheel/Rash repair in the Bay Area?

      Picked up a set of wheels for my new R, but they've got some rash on them (couldn't say no to the price though!) Anyone know or recommend a place to get 'em taken care of, ideally in the North Bay?

      When I spoke with WVoA during my lemon buyback, I was told that a replacement car couldn't happen because they had released ALL 2019 Rs to dealers, meaning that they essentially flooded the market....

      At least here in the Bay Area, the fact that there's no R for 2020 means that dealers are back to demanding a premium. I got mine for $750 under MSRP, and people here are shocked I got that, with...

      Yeah, I think the Pretorias are under 20 - can't see how putting an extra 6+ lbs on each corner for the sake of looks is a smart move.
