    Right, help me out here. Having my RS4 19" wheels refurbed and need to decide what colour to go for. Am thinking to keep the cost of refurb down...to just go for a straight single colour Silver, Half Gloss/ Matt Black or Gun Metal dark grey....as am colour blind it won't matter to me...but could do with a few ideas from you lot. Any suggestions....What d'ya reckon?
    Cheers

    ps: Decided to scrap the plasti dip idea as I just think it would handle the weather here very well, so biting the bullet for a refurb instead.

    If your colourblind I would say lime green with a pink lip around the outside :icon_thumright:


    no seriously I like the Matt look personally could go black or gunmetal with that, I'm sure whatever you decide it will look awesome and complement the other mods you have done recently

    Actually....like that idea...shall I stencil.." Chase me, Chase me and I will have a half pint of lager and damn good thrashing" on the doors as well? hehehe

    Aye, thanks for the that...I am almost ruling out the alloy/silver option as it's a bit ubiquitous.

    Cheers

    silver is too run of the mill IMO, would be nice to have something which stands out

    Off to town ramora with my wheels to Intera, Stockholm. Riktar och lackerar fälgar i Stockholm. These Guys are the only one's who come recommended and that's not because they are cheap either! It's going to hurt my wallet big time....but really want them on the bus now...feck it! Gun Metal Grey it is then!

    Cheers

    I won't embarrass myself by telling you how much it cost.....but "Audi Titanium" ( mid - Gunmetal grey'ish with half gloss/matt finish ) it is then.....3 weeks wait for sand blasting, wheel correction and painting!
    Felt a bit of a poor nob parking the bus between a Maserati Coupe and Ferrari 360...desperately trying to act non plus to The Intera staff! hahaha

    Looking forward to the end of July now......need to put my kidney on EBay!

    Colour should be a bit like this....er hopefully.
