Angry Got ran into a curb

Some stupid moron just cut me off and ran me into a curb. In the picture attached you can see the damage to the rim. Does anybody know if this can be repaired or am I forced to either live with it or replace the wheel. Any and all help and suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks

You can definitely get this repaired. Probably a full wheel refurb though! This happened to me the other day, as well as some one denting my door. Not a good feeling hope you get it sorted!

I googled and found a couple of places in town that fix rims. Will have to give one of them a try

that doesn't look too bad at all. In a situation like this you can get a DIY kit or take it to a shop to have it repair. After they repair it i would have the wheel rebalanced just to make sure.

On a BMW like this I don't like to keep battle scars, it's cool on old school E36's drift cars but not on a brand new 4 series thats nearly mint
