So I have a slow leak in my driver's side front tire. After going to a few shops and the stealership we have diagnosed that I must have hit some type of pothole and slightly bent the interior lip of the rim, which has broken the seal with the tire and caused an air leak... Audi said they would charge at least $140 to fix the rim and $40 just to take the wheel off and on. So thats at least $180...
I also have another big problem. I have lug nut locks on the rims but no key for them (thank you used car dealer). Audi said that they are aftermarket locks so they would have to remove and replace them for ~$100 and probably tack on that wonderful $115 / hr audi labor.
There are some other shops which can take the locks off and put new ones on cheaper but would not be able to fix the rim too... Audi can at least do both in one shot for me, which is somewhat helpful as I need the car to commute to and from work (9-5) which makes multiple days and multiple shops somewhat of a hassle.
Anyone got any suggestions of shops or fixes? Or do I just bite the bullet and pay the dealership? Guess I should mention I live in Fairfield and work in Stamford, so within 30m - 1hr of either of those is my limit.
