    I'll be getting my wheels powder coated soon in the same standard silver colour but I'm not sure on the finish. Can I just check, is the standard finish of the wheels a sort of matte finish?

    Hi guys, When I've scratched normal colour alloys before, I would do a temporary touch up with silver paint to fill and cover up (until there was enough damage to call the Chips Away/alloy repair guy out). Our new car has the darker titanium finish alloys and the wife has already scratched...
