    I have a few scratches on my silver A4 and was wondering if the touch up paint was worth a purchase?

    Any opinions?

    It never really looks the same mate i would get someone likr chipsaway to do it. You must have something similar over there if not the same NE. If there only small scratches it shouldnt really cost more than £60 quid or so

    Silver is always very difficult to get right,

    If you do go for touch up paint, get it from the stealers as they'll be able to match it exactly.

    hope it helps

    One of the audi dealers on ebay is selling the touch up kits for cheap in any colour.

    Cheers guys, that's the one I was looking at. The local stealer wants €80 for the touch up paint but the ebay lad staffordaudiparts is selling them for a fiver. I also ordered a set or rear mudflaps off the same guy, £30 cheaper than the stealer. Never even thought to ask Vag-Parts.

    One of the rear mudflaps came off and scratched the rear just behind where the mudflap is supposed to be, so it's annoying me when I see it. Grrr..
    Cheers,

    80 euros for the touch up paint, is it molten silver?

    As mentioned, £5.99 on ebay!
