I have 20k miles on my 05 V and the wheels are all starting to lose their silver paint and they look white underneath. This is most prevalent in the spokes. This a warranty issue? They look like they are glass beaded in areas????

Thanks!

I had some weird staining issue with my rims and the dealer had them refinished and powdercoated.

My dealer attempted to refinish my wheels twice, they had looked better before they started messing with them. So I finally did the chrome exchange on e-bay. Good luck if you can get your dealer to do it for you, I had to fight with them like crazy.

I tried to get mine to give me new ones, but they wanted to refinish. I'm happy with the end product. The colour is a little brighter than stock. Looks amazing.
