The wife has lighly curbed 2 of the SE Wheels, not really gouged, but small scratches. Does anybody know if there is touch up paint available for the SE wheels, and if so a paint code for them?

I never heard of touch-up paint for rims? I don't think standard paint can handle the heat. I know there are companies that recondition rims for curb damage. They charge 125 - 150 per rim.

I hope your wrong, these are just small scrapes that do not warrant that kind of money, just a little touch up. If I can't find anything I will just live with it they are so small.

I've never heard of any touch up paint for rims either, and $150/rim to recondition them sounds pretty standard. Obviously such a cost doesn't make much sense. You could probably replace the wheel for that cost, if the scratches really bother you. Or you could put on spinner attachments, and you'd be the biggest pimp in all of Chippewa Township (though I guess your wife might not appreciate your new status).

Congrats Joeeey on your new Veteran status! I haven't been on this board too long, but I can already tell that you a great contributor!

Take it to your dealer, they have guys that come around every week and repair wheels. Probably somewhere in the 50-75 dollar range each to repair. I had two done and you cannot tell they were ever damaged.

The wheels on all models just seems to be painted with regular old paint, and not even painted that well as my 2.0t has poor coverage of the underlying black primer. I would just find some decent touch-up paint and cover the flaws... I bet it will hold up just fine.
