    I think this is fairly common on Audi's. Does anyone know what the best paint to use for touching it up is?

    At the moment I have a largish section of exposed silver metal which stands out like a sore thumb so I want to cover it up.

    Cheers

    I've the same damn problem mate, was thinking of getting standard black spray for it but giving it a good cleaning with the wire brush.

    Thanks for the tips. Can anyone recommend a particular paint that would be good to use? Or would any paint designed for application to metal be ok?

    Alternatively, how difficult/expensive is it to replace the arms?

    Cheers

    Mike

    Just a thought but how about upgrading to the aero style (if you haven't already got them)?
