If you damaged a wheel on a demonstrator or a lease car, they'd bill you for a new wheel not the refurb cost, so how come it doesn't work the other way around?

I have a GLE with the 43 petrol engine and have averaged 23 mpg over 20 k miles. First couple of miles fuel consumption is poor.
By the way saw your C63 question last week. I have had one for a day and done the AMG half day in one. Fun car to drive and awesome sound.

Excellent reaction to my complaint.

My local dealer's mechanic has spent time in Malvern and is very knowledgable on any aspect of Mogs. Helps that he is a real car "Nut"

My dad was a coachbuilder. If a car came in for bodywork there were two options.
Insurance....new parts BUT some assessors tried to offer second hand panels from scrapped cars (usually bonnet, boot lid, doors.).
Pay yourself....asked for preference after discussion. This sometimes kept costs down.
He always pointed out the pros/cons of either re fitting and prep so they were fully aware.
With new parts then pattern versus manufacturer was an option, patterns often needing “adjustments”!

I assume you will ask for the damaged rim, so you can keep it as a spare Peter? It'll probably get slung otherwise. You might as well get something out of this.

BTW, just a thought, you should have the wheel alignment checked, if it was hit badly enough to damage the rim it is quite likely to have damaged or misaligned a suspension component.
