    Im guessing you mean rolled as in just getting the inner lip rolled back. I have never seen this done where the paint doesnt crack. I have even tired it myself many times using a lot of differant methods, including lots of heat, and the paint still cracks. This will allow water to get in and start to rust under the paint.

    Yeah I tried having all that done with my old mk3 golf, the only safe way is to have it rolled then the panel resprayed. Most body shops should be able to do that but sorry can't recommend any in London. Springfields in Guildford are good though, crash repair center for VW in Sly Field Industrial estate
