Default argh...curbed one of my new wheels this morning

Got up early to run an errand, wasn't really thinking about it and tried to perfect my parking job and curbed one of my new Prodrive PFF7's. As in most cases, it isn't all that noticable unless you're up close. The impulsive part of me says I should just pick up a new one and be more careful. The frugal part of me says there's no real point in pissing away $300 for a minor cosmetic problem when there's no guarantee I won't do it again. Opinions?

Get it repaired - a good shop will charge you less than 100 bucks and it will look as good as new. You'll do it again....

Can you recommend a good place to get it done? I'm actually moving down your way (kinda) - northern VA area. I called the place most people on the Mid-Atlantic forum recommend - Ye Old Wheel Shop I think is the name, and the guy said they have a backlog of about 4 weeks now and that I'd have to drop it off and wait all that time. Anywhere else I should look?

why get it fixed if its likely you may do it again? You curbed it, big deal, spending $300 for a new one or $100 to get it fixed is somewhat silly unless you are trying to sell them all.

Don't get a new one. Your car is your daily driver, **** happens, and it will proably happen again. My factory BBS's have little rashes (mom & finacee driving) and there is a chip missing out of one of the spokes. It dosnt bother me. Now if the car was a pure show car, then a new rim would be on call.

Learn how to park right the first try
j/k It's not a big deal and it will happen again, take a dremel or a buffing disc to it and try to smooth it out, I did this to my Konig polished lip after a curb rash and it cleaned it up 90% so that only I noticed it.
