Whelp...my son curbed the wheel. I saw it happen in slo-mo. So painful. Have wheel insurance so not a huge deal - anyone have before and after pics they can share? I’m assuming Porsche remedies cosmetic issues pretty well due to very discerning owners but I’m still a little nervous...damn kids!

This makes me cringe - like sympathy pain when you're playing sports with the fellas and someone gets their eggs scrambled...

You need to add a NSFW disclaimer.

Really sorry to hear.

I've seen some pretty amazing wheel repairs. My guess is you won't be able to notice where it was repaired. It will obviously need to be polished and repainted.

Here‘s picture of one of the two times we’ve curbed our wheels (apparently we are slow learners). Both times we had it repaired at a local detail shop. Both times it came back looking brand new. Yours looks nasty but if they know what they’re doing you should be ok

Oof 😖

I also got the Porsche wheel and tire insurance for Mission E wheels. I think it's a no-brainer for the peace of mind alone.

Does Porsche replace the wheel if the wheel is damaged beyond repair? (I know, I should have read the terms and conditions)

I curbed my 2 passenger side Mission E wheels going through a bank drive through. I had insurance and Porsche easily repaired them both. Can't tell now. Retail was about $150/wheel. 1 day job.

They replace if bent - not sure about cosmetic damage that’s so bad it can’t be buffed...but my assumption is you could make a case.

I tried to get them to replace the wheel but they we adamant that would only do so if the car was undrivable. Otherwise cosmetic repair only. Fortunately we found a shop that is very good at it.

What does Porsche charge for their insurance?

A cool $2649! Not so cheap - up to 8 cosmetic fixes like this one - assume each one costs at least $300-500...plus tire and full rim protection for 5 years (transferable). I think it makes sense...but who knows. Feels pretty good having it right now...

The fixed wheel looks better than the others IMHO...

Yup. I found it cheaper not from the dealer but then decided the extra $1K was worth them dealing with the 3rd party.
