    Correct paint for RS6 alloy's

    I need to do a bit of touching up on my RS6 5 spokes (not sure if they are genuine articles, 18 x 8.5 but do look very good quality).
    Problem is, they are not a normal "flat" silver. Nor are they chrome. They are like a multishade silver. A local car shop said they think they are "super bright".
    Does anybody know what I am on about and can offer advice on the colour I need?
    Seen some Wurth alloy paint which is apparently the same as the std silver for BMW/Audi/Merc's etc, but as I say, it does not look like a std silver.
    Thanks in advance.....

    as in the body colour, not the alloy wheel silver colour?

    Looks like mine are probably not genuine then, as they are not a "plain" silver.

    Has anyone heard of super bright silver????

    Red face Sliner

    These wheels need to have a new type of aluminium finish to repair them, of which there are many versions from different suppliers. Best match / cost product I've found is Lechler "Sparkling Glass" which needs a groundcoat (I think black) first and a two pack acrylic clearcoat after. Its a very good match to the original colour. Best to get a professional bodyshop to do it
