Anyone know what colour they are (17inch alloys) or a colour code for touching up? Audi don't have a code list for alloy wheels :(

Most likely Avus Silver, non pearl.

If they are the same colour as the old RS4 TT wheels.

Maybe ask a wheel referb place to make sure.

There is a non pearl Avus Triple, i bought a kit from Audi to do my A2 17" RS4's... Same colour as the TT 18" RS4's and it was a perfect match! I have lost the part number though.

The A1 wheels maybe a different colour though

1h7 isn't listed at my local halfords :(

Think the guy was a little slow he couldnt grasp the concept the chassis number won't give him the alloy wheel colour!

I'm sure he passed the rigorous aptitude exam required before gaining employment at Halfords :roll:

It was like

me : "Hi here's the paint code I need..."

GUY : "I need your car model or chassis number"

me : "it won't come up as I need this specific colour for my alloys"

GUY : "this paint isn't for alloys"

me : "i know that!"

OMGGGGGGGGGGG
