I had the front wheel on my D3 straightened 2 years ago, its perfectly fine today except the polished alloy finish is slowly failing.

You maybe able to get it repaired and sell it on, that would recoup some of the replacement wheel cost.

Cheers Manny. I donít think itís worth the cost/effort to straighten it and refurb it. If it doesnít sell on eBay I guess I may think again.
