And then my heart just skipped a beat...as I was cleaning the wheels, I discovered a curb checked on the passenger rear wheel. Asked the wife how the heck did you curb check a SUV? Ofcourse their response is always: what??!! I dont know or even noticed it happened...c'mon!!! So I spent the literary the whole day researching places to fix them in Houston. Any recommendations and is the hyper silver finish hard to match? Has anyone experience this and got it done? Its really not that bad at all.. But im anal with my toys, especially when its brand freaking new. Just needed to vent..thnx
You might try here. They have 5 in stock in Houston. You could bring one out to your GC and see how their work matches to factory.

For future reference (it's only a matter of time before my wife does the same thing) I would be interested in knowing if you are able to get it fixed. And also seeing a before and after pic if u do get it fixed.

Re: 1 month old and :/.....

Let's try this first post again. The first attempt was eaten by a page refresh.

I just went through the same roller coaster of emotions on my Overland. I discovered it, freaked, questioned my fiancÚ, got the a WTF look, stormed off.

After contemplating selling it, bringing in my wheel guy to refinish, or maybe selling it after owning for one week, I took a breather and had a beer.

We're moving to Alaska, and we're sharing one car so this will be the first of many scratches. I have stacks of detailing equipment from my more anal car days (2 SRTs). I took some ultra fine steel wool and cutting polish to the area, and now it's barely noticeable.

Also, after rotating the tires I've pretty much forgotten. You know, out of sight, out of mind. It did sting finding scratches under mud and red paint from the curb, but like another said, the first one cuts the deepest.

Re: 1 month old and :/.....

I got caught behind a truck out on 95 last week...took a rock to the windshield and the bumper. Got the nick in the glass fixed, found the nick in the lower bumper when I washed it this past Saturday. Pi**ed me off like you wouldn't believe, but I've kinda accepted it now...I drive the interstates on a regular basis to work and it's gonna happen. Mine was 2 months old.
