    I used paint from the dealers.
    Audi Avus silver, you get a tin of base coat silver metallic, and a tin of clear lacquer.
    IIRC was £11 a set.

    Part number/Paint code is - LLS 0M6 Z17

    Halfords 'Aluminium Silver' is very similar.

    I did these with the genuine Avus colour:

    Yes - I used Audi paint and lacquer on the outsides, and Halfords stuff on the insides.

    yes you can go for wurth silver,it covers pretty good.any halfords silver will do the job.once you do the clear coat.take your time using a fine polishing
    compound to get a decent finish.ferecla g10 or use some t-cut.only downside to aerosol lacquer is it lacks durability.
