    Hi Guys,

    I am wanting to tidy up the usual suspect areas that rust has hit my coupe (rear arch's especially).

    I have seen on a couple of threads that Halfords are no go in terms of matching the paint, is this the case?? (the colour is montreal blue)

    thanks in advance

    they are useless at matching paint. they matched some up for my old 318i and it didnt look right. wasnt far off but still wasnt identical

    Theres no such thing as a perfect match, you can get really really close but not perfect.

    You'd be better off going to a local paint suppliers shop and they'll colour match your paint, they'll come out with paint cards and mix you a can. Montreal blue shouldn't be hard to mix up I think theres only 3 different shades so you can't go wrong much.
