    Where is the best place to get some Topaz Blue spray tins? I have seen them in Halfords but I am unsure if they are a good colour match.

    Do BMW do rattle cans? A two pack kit, one colour and the other clear? How much are they?

    many thanks

    Yeah you're right mate

    They cost just shy of £21 and you get two 150ml cans, ones the colour, the other a clear lacquer spray. I'd say the colour match is very good, although a 150ml isnt long in emptying itself.

    Another vote for these guys here. Bought some red rattle cans for my Porsche and was very impressed. Especially at £11 a can.
    Bear in mind it is 2K though so cover up and wear a good mask!

    Still BMW prices! OMG. My old vx was £12 for the same kit from the dealers
