    Not sure whether I dare blame the missus but we have a light scuff on one of our wheels.

    Does anyone know what colour 'touch up will hide the damage. It really isn't bad but my alloy wheel touch up in silver for other Audi/VW wheels is TOO silver.

    Does anyone know what colour might work. Stick or aerosol.

    Thanks

    Pilot.

    Did you ever find anything? I have a light scuff on the outer rim of one of mine?

    I had a mobile repair guy come out & do a repair on a courtesy car I had, rotor wheels, brand new car, & I kerbed the bloody thing 24hrs before it was due back! Only cost £55 for the repair & it was perfect.

    Do a Google search for 'Wheel thing' , there should be one in your area.

    Hello matey, just done the same to one of mine, was that the price from Audi for an 18" titanium rotor? ie is it a genuine rim?
     
  9. VAG and Mercedes use silver spray from Wurth on alloys.

    145 quid for a rotor alloy. Is this some kind of service exchange at Audi ?

    Not in a diamond polished wheel I would hope they don't!

    One wheel from Audi like the ones I have in my picture are £500 each from Audi so that gives you an idea on the price of a rotor...

    That's what I thought. I would never dream of painting the machined tips in silver. It would look pretty gash to me. And 145 quid seems a bit cheap for a new one

    Bought it off ebay. Badly advertised. Not in perfect condition but it's better than the one I have on the car. I'm tempted to pay for it refurbing to see what the finish comes out like.
     
  14. Ah! Good point I'd missed that.

    At that money I wouldn't mind betting it's not an original Audi wheel, and also if you get it returned the finish is never normally as good as from the factory...
