    RS6 style wheel colour?

    HI Ive had to have one of my A3 S-line wheels refurbed due to my dad hitting the kerb. The wheel has come back and isnt the same shade of silver as originally(its alot duller).

    Its a 5 spoke wheel made by Ronal I think and in the same design as the RS6 wheels and is standard fitment to A3 s-lines.
    Here is a pic of one


    Do any of you guys know the colour code of the wheels so I can get it resprayed the correct colour? I've emailed Ronal.de but they havent replied to me yet. Other wise im going to have to buy a new rim. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Re: RS6 style wheel colour?

    I've read (on here somewhere probably) that it's not "regular" paint they use on RS6's - hence why when they are refurbed they never look the same.... Not sure what you could do - maybe have all of them painted? Or at least the two on the affected side so the difference doesn't show.

    It's one of the reasons that I haven't had mine done - that and I'm bound to do it again.....
