I'm looking to repaint my le mans alloys - Satin grey to silver

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

New to the club! Picked up my 2011 TT 2.0 tsfi s-line black edition last week. Hopefully I've posted this in the right place, sorry if not!

I love the car, but am not sure about the satin grey finish on the 19in le mans alloys. They need repairing as the fronts have been curbed, but I'm wondering if painting them silver is worth it.

Was the satin grey a finish specific to the s-line/black edition? I don't think I want to paint over something that was essentially an optional extra from new!

I'd be aiming to match the alloys up with the fuel filler cap, or there abouts. I think it'll make the car look much more modern against the blue. (Does anyone know which factory blue that is?)

Sorry for the blurry, over saturated pic, it's from the seller's listing.

Anyone have any thoughts for me?

The colour is Scuba Blue apparently

Welcome to the forum Jack, you'll find the members on here are a friendly and helpful bunch 🙂 That is a lovely colour 👍 definitely agree on matching it up with the fuel filler flap will really set the car off 👍

Thanks Steve!

I think I'll get the alloys booked in at a shop in the near future and post an update pic here 🙂

If you were thinking of doing something a little different maybe painting them black would be a nice look as well 🙂
