First Batch P85D in HK, MC Red, Rim Scraped on First Day

Love the car, quality finish (vis-à-vis "managed expectation" from viewing the demo cars from last year, only very minor misalignment on one or two spots, not noticeable unless you are looking). Tragedy is I scraped one of the rims badly on day one (no regret getting them), can someone recommend a service shop good at touching up scraped rims, especially the grey color kind used by Tesla? Hope I have uploaded the picture right (damaged wheel on the other side), the car is a looker, isn't it? Love the MC red, wouldn't have it another way.....

Have been to my local tyre shop in Tuen Mun twice now for some serious rim repair! Done a fantastic job on both occasions.

Total damage $500 each visit... but I came with the rim paint to match, available from the SC.
