Silver is grey, but with some contrast and or a gradient in it. Can you post an image?

If you are using version 9+ try using the carpaint node, give it a shade of gray. Then create some strips that are white and luminous then move them back behind the camera. Your object will then reflect the strips giving a silver metallic texture.

Here is a quick example of the texture. playing around a bit will effect the quality of the texture.

Doesn't it need something to reflect to have reflections? Or a reflection map. Are you using either?

Is there anything to reflect? A reflective surface w/o anything to reflect is pointless. And grey.
