Hello fellow R32 enthusiasts! I am new to the forum so thought I should firstly introduce myself.

I have owned an R32 for about 2 years now. It is a Mk 5 in silver. I absolutely love it - what a machine!

Looking forward to contributing to the forum.

I have discovered that one of my alloys has undergone a repair. It looks like the alloy has had a crack down the centre which has been patched up. It seems to be a decent repair but I am no expert, and I am wondering whether I should just replace it. I don't want the wheel to collapse whilst travelling at speed.

My local VW dealer has quoted £608 for a replacement alloy which sounds like an awful lot of money . Does anyone have any advice on where to buy a replacement alloy? Anyone looking to sell one? It is the omanyt style.

Thank you.
