I realize that the silver on our wheels is actually powdercoating, but has anyone found an excellent paint match for this color? My "friend" might have accidentally nicked a curb ;)

I had mine refinished by my dealer (for a charge at the same time he did other Karma owners....your friend is not alone), and they look like brand new. I can't tell you about the paint, but he might. BJ with Fisker of Bellevue.

Thanks EVer1... may I ask how long it took your dealer and how much the fee was?

Thank you for the helpful information.

Fisker Silicon Valley said they would "Fix" a scoffed wheel for $175. I also scoffed one of my wheels on a curb. Haven't "Fixed" it yet as it is not very noticable.

I had a guy fix the wheels on my previous car (JAG XK) before returning the car at the end of the lease. He came to my office and did a fantastic job for about $150/wheel. I may end up calling him for the Karma after I have mastered parking the car without hitting curbs in SF. It would be immensely helpful if Fisker would program in a mirror dip when the car is in Reverse to help parallel park the car without hitting the curb.

It took one day, probably less but I left it with him for the day and several Fisker's were taken care of. The price was $160 per, and they looked brand new.

I was so glad to read this post and find I'm not the only one who can't judge how far the right side wheels of this vehicle extends. I thought I had just lost my parking skills. I won't get it fixed until the right mirror adjusts down in reverse.

I have yet to try to parallel park my Karma - too dangerous =)

Don't quote me on this but I'm not 100% sure the wheels are powder coated I have to look into that unless someone on the forum knows for sure they are actually powder coated

I've also had one fixed at Fisker of Bellevue. I must admit the first time I looked at the Karma, the rims drew attention to me as I suspected this would be an issue. They gave great service and great match with colors. quote was similar to what i've seen here.
