    after cleaning the ingrained dirt off of my wheels lately, i noticed that there is some kerbing on the front two. i cnt afford to get them professionally done at the mo, so will do a diy job on them to keep them tidied over. does anyone know the paintcode for them? thanks!!

    edit: apologies, wanted to post a pic of them but kind find the attachments button (its late!, or early?! :uhm:) anywhoo, there 18 inch nine spoke genuine audi alloys, the older RS4 ones. there the greyey silverey colour. thanks again.

    Found this with a spot of looking, but should be the right colour and you get a guide too!

    Also, in the A4 the list of codes is found in the boot where the spare wheel is but I'm not sure if would include a wheel code :unsure:

    Good luck with the repair, I need to get round to doing mine before the winter sets in :unsure:

    I would be careful with the kit you have though as it isnt aerosol spray so the finish may not be as good unless you are very careful!

    i know ya. i was gonna purchase some wurth spray and go down that route, but when i came across this kit i just said id try it. i will be very carefull, but if its not working out (i am pretty particular, unfortunately!), i will just rub it back abd try the wurth way. worth a go! will leave ye know how it goes.
