    Its called Avus silver. The part number LLS OM6 Z17 will get you a 150ml can of lacquer and the same of Top Coat. About £11.

    Halfords "Aluminium Silver" is virtually, if not identical. I'm not at home at the moment and can't recall the paint code off the top of my head.

    id go to halfords mate iv just got the paint from audi/tps and it works out nearly twice as much as you can buy it from halfords was some thing like 13 pounds all in trade price from tps for 2 150 cans so you need to lots for all 4 wheels and halfords are around 5.99 each can of silver 300ml ones top coat is 699 ish for 500 or 600ml cans

    The Audi paint is better, use that on the outside and the Halfords equivalent on the insides.

    I find that it applies smoother and more evenly for the aerosol can.

    is avus silver also used on the s4 (B6) alloys or are they different color?

    They look the same colour, and it would certainly make sense to have Avus wheels in Avus silver, but I can't say for definite! You'd not go wrong if you did them that colour though.

    hi i refurb audi alloys as an occupation there isnt a proper formulation but i have matched it by trial an error you will need a half litre of lechler 392 silver and half litre of 393 lechler mix them 50 50 and its the same as rs4 s3 etc hope this helps if your in the north i could probably get you a good deal on the basecoat and laquer im in the trade

    RAL 9006 is an industry standard silver, RAL 9007 is a gun metal, I am a commercial sprayer we use these colours a lot on-site. I tried the Halfords aluminuim wheel paint it was a poor quality synthetic and quite dark in colour compared to the bright silvers.
    I am looking for a good set of genuine 17" or 18" alloys and good tyres if anyone can help (112 stud spacing A4 B6). I've spent the last 3 weeks driving around looking at rubbish, cracked replicas appear to be quite popular.
    Hope the paint info helps

    7016 is a nice Anthrecite,you could always put a hint of silver metallic in the clearcoat to add a little sparkle.
    There is a colour chart on my site.

    hi guys, thanks for all the posts,

    after a bit of research i found that avus silver has a slight tinge of blue/grey in it which i didn't like, then i found audi done an aluminium silver which is nice and bright then found that halfords do exactly the same colour in there Aluminium spray can, anyway got the real deal from my local paint supplier, will put up some pics when they are done.. as theyre drying as we speak
