Actually they are the original wheels which came with TT's after the 2002 facelift. They were looking a little grotty so had them refurbished and sprayed in anthracite about 3-years ago. Dirt doesn't show as much as when they are silver.
The Q2's 19" alloys are an absolute pig to clean. No knuckle skin left!!!!!

Actually, the alloys are the originals as fitted to TT's post 2002 facelift. They were getting a little grotty so had them re-furbed and re-coated in anthracite paint about 3-years ago. Dirt doesn't show as much as when they were silver!!!
The Q2's 19" Y-spoke alloys are a real pain to clean. I have no skin on my knuckles!!!!

The 19” are difficult to clean, found an IKEA bottle brush is the best option for cleaning inside of the rims and the 'No Metal' Alloy Wheel Brush by Kent for cleaning the front of the alloys.

MEDELVÅG Bottle brush £0.80 - 103.979.34

'No Metal' Alloy Wheel Brush £2.99 from the Range.

Actually using a bottle brush! Just need thick gloves to protect against alloy/knuckle interface! 😁
