    Quattro Sport Wheel Colour

    I going to be getting my wheels powder coated. i have weighed up getting a set Avus wheels, but they are unlikely to be in A1 condition, so would need a refurb so might just as well get mine done. I have a Aluminium Silver metallic Avant with the full Quattro Sport bodykit. Trouble is i am torn between getting the wheels done in black or gun metal grey.

    I was hoping to post a pic of my car in profile for you to look at, but i seem to be unable to post photos on here. Any thoughts?

    Matt

    Posting pics is relatively straightforward, there's a sticky in the General Chat section I think. Upload them to Photobucket (or similar) and then copy and paste the IMG tag under each image into your post.

    Personally Black is out, but I think gunmetal grey would look great on your silver car!

    I have to confess I'm not a fan of dark coloured wheels of any sort. Too often, they give the impression of looking dirty.

    Having reread your OP I'm a bit confused.... are you getting a set of Avus's or refurbing your 17" existing wheels?

    Both will suit, if it was me on a silver though I say Gunmetal...BUT if you want to go darker then go Matt Black, not gloss

    I have a similar Avant QS to yours - in 'Light silver metallic' - paint code LY7W.
    IMHO, I would go for Gunmetal. Black will, as has been said, look 'dirty'.
    Gunmetal, on the other hand, will look cool.
