Anyone had any problems with wheel corrosion, or rather the dreaded white worm under the lacquer? And any success getting replaced/refurbed under warranty?

Got the classic wheels. Just one has corroded on the back but the other three are perfectly fine. Took it into VW and they said VW probably won't fix it. Not happy with probably, I want a defiant yes or no. He then said it was caused by the wheel centre being damaged, which there is no damage too. Will chase it up with VW customer service and give a complaint about the garage too.

You tell them! Because the sales man will always try bot to pay out...its in there blood
