Hey,

Having had the same problem, I found that it is near impossible to repair a BMW rim in Australia...the proprietary BMW spoke arrangement means almost no one (aside from Woody the magician in America perhaps!) can repair them. The most cost effective option for me was to buy an aftermarket rim, with a more standard spoke arrangement, that will allow future repairs like any standard spoked wheel.

For my 2c, I'd highly recommend Ash of Ash's Spoked Wheels near Albion. He's an expert in his field and did a great job for me.
