    RS4 alloys paint match

    hi, just noticed a little blemish on my new rs4's, and i was wondering if anyone could advise me on what would be the best colour touch-up paint to get.
    i know some people in the past have advised on different colour paints for different alloys, but i cant find any mentioned for the rs4's.
    cheers

    I'm guessing they're 2nd hand alloys? What kind of blemish, bubbling or have they been scratched etc. TBH, I haven't heard of people mentioning different paint codes, usually they rely of somebody refurbishing the wheel getting it right.

    Looking at Etka there are several part numbers for the wheels and all execpt one just give the colour as Silver.

    Wheel part number 8E0 601 025 BE which is a 9Jx19 wheel lists a colour as 8AU-TITAN.

    Hey marty ill need to keep an eye out for your a3 with the new wheels on. I used to use a halfrauds Ford moondust silver touch up kit on my old 18" bsa wheels and it was spot on.

    its just that the rs4's seem a little darker in colour than my original alloys.
    it is an inch long scratch that has started a little bubbling around it, nothing major.
    aye paul, give us a toot if our paths cross!!!
