I am hypnotized! Slightly scared,....and oddly uncomfortable.
Usual suspects: Environment! and whats with the bump?....Is it 'vertical grainy gold' ?

its supose look like iron mans gold helmet which has steel brush marks on it but iv tried loads different materiel that were pre made iv tried tutorials and it just doesn't work the scene isn't inside though so there isn't relay any light that it can bounce of but if i add a light it becomes way to bright. iv tryed putting a HDRI in the environment slot but doesn't change anything anyone know how i could create
that kind of gold?

Add a goldish color into the reflection slot and play with that.

turn your energy presevation mode to monochromatic...
and a better environment (and no, thats doesnt mean just putting in an hdri there).
your model is also flat... aka really hard to light. unlike iron mans; which while difficult was a dream to make look good.

it's going to be difficult to get much reflection shape out of a perfectly flat surface. Curved surfaces are much easier to get shape and highlights.
The gold shader and vray aren't realy your problems, your problem is reflection and shape. Though your bump map in the gold is more like a brushed metal than worn gold.

according to the ILM breakdown on the Iron Man asset:
"Brushed Nickel with gold plating applied on top"
