    Black Edition Wheel Colour

    Has anyone had their wheels refurbed to match the quartz titanium colour used on current black edition wheels, if so what colour/paint code did you use? Thanks

    I got Audi to do my new S3 wheels in the BE colour.

    I don't know what the code is, but a lot of Audi dealerships now offer a wheel refurb facility. They charged me 50 a wheel - that was just painitng, since the wheels were new there was no kerbing to fix.

    Might be worth giving your local dealer a call

    Ours appear to be two colours. The Rotors are a darker Titanium colour and the rim is more silver.

    Paint code for the black edition rs4 style wheels is L8AU for anyone interested. I got myself some of this paint for refurbing my wheels

    My local motor factors mixed it for me. It can probably be bought on the internet, if not you can get it mixed easily enough.

    Yup, you should be able to use it for powder coating

    Matting agent is mixed into the lacquer to give the matt finish. I gave the L8AU paint code to the motor factors and they have software which shows the quantity of paint, matt agent and lacquer to be used

    so can this be individually specified than?or do you mean when giving this code you get the exact same color as what on the new rs wheels? i just want the same look as the new rs wheels.if you have any pics of ur wheels after the refurb that would give a good indication. I am sending mine in for a refurb next week so dont want to be messing around getting the colour right

    If you give them the paint code you should get the same colour and finish. I'm hoping to refurb mine this week so I'll get pics up then
