    so went to see another garage about getting them sprayed and was quoted an insane £350 . so idea would be to clean them, prime them, spray then laquer and bake, sand them back down and spray again. way too much i thought!

    If you get the colour code-which should be on a sticker on the nearside turret under the bonnet you should be able get the exact match

    you are correct this is what i did but as soon as they put the code in the computer it bought up 3 shades dont think you would tell the differance if you bought any of the 3 but as i work with colours i could tell

    There's also 3 shades of alpine white III,I know cause I wanted some for mine,when I first asked they said which shade so I went and got the number and no problem -if they put the right code in then it should come up with the correct shade-if it doesn't then its a problem with the company you use.
