Welcome to the forum. Smile

I think that all of the cars are now out of warranty, so I'm guessing a lot more DIY fixes will be documented on here in the future.

Yes I was fortunate to have ball joints replaced under warranty, otherwise been lucky so far but a service and MOT due in a few months so will see what that brings.
Already looking at option to repair or replace wheels as have kerb damage

The problem with the wheels is that they are wider than the tyres, so will always touch the kerb first. I switched to 15" wheels to stop this. The old Dynamique used to have 16" wheels, but the 17" on all other models are terrible - especially as they are diamond cut and lacquered.

I have the 17" and got a quote of £75 per wheel for repair, assuming they weren't badly damaged. However considering option to change them to 15" would be cheaper in long run

I got mine done at £35 per wheel but the lacquered finish is lifting off so will have to have them done again but not much in the way of kerb damage this time.
