    Got a set of 18" RS4 alloys and need to get them refurbed.

    looking for some ideas of what colour to go for, standard CE Silver, CE silver with a black undercoat (makes it a bit darker) or Shadow Effect Silver (silver on fronts and gets darker as it goes through spokes)??

    ideas or pics would be great, plan is for these to be summer alloys

    cheers lads

    I've just finished priming my rs4 wheels and I chose for my Ming blue s3 a gun metal grey colour with small flakes and a tint of blue, it's called moonland pearl and is a vauxhall colour, I also think it would look good on silver cars.

    I took inspiration from a GT-R's wheels

    Gunmetal, I have had mine powdercoated gunmetal grey with a heavy metallic flake, on a Silver S3 too, not too dark and they set off the car and the colour well.

    Have to agree with the above, anthracite goes so well with silver. If you fancy something darker BMW Sparkling Graphite is an awesome colour.

    Mine are powdercoated in a finish called 'steel'.

    Not an S3 but you get the idea...spot on for a silver car IMO...
