    Hi,

    My 320d (2004) is not the standard black colour, it's the individual black colour. I washed and polished it the other day and I'd like to touch up the stone chips etc.

    Where can I buy the touch up paint? Which would should I get?

    Thanks

    My brother has a Techno Violet BMW Individual colour on his 330Ci M Sport Convertible, and he wanted some paint for stone chips

    He tried a few places which "apparently" match up colour using computers and all that stuff, but because its a BMW Individual colour - you'll be best off going BMW mate!

    Seconded
    A dealer will be able to order the correct touch up sticks for your car

    Can I order it off the net from somewhere? Mail order?

    What sorts of appliaction do they offer btw? Is it just the standard bottle of paint touchup with a brush applicator?

    Cheers

    You will be best off going into the dealers with your chassis number as it will be the correct match for the car. They will do the little pots with the brushes.
    I usually use a different brush from a model shop as they are finer

    Yeah, they are far too big IMO.
    Least using a modelling brush you can fill the chips with the paint and get a decent finish.

    What did you not understand there Chris? do you not think Neal may need some too? perhaps you could let him know where you get yours from and tell him how much it cost? Did you catch the name of the assistant? was the assistant male or female? tall or short? fat or skinny? worth one? or hit by the ugly tree????

    Do you think someone maybe taking the PISH????
