Hi,
First time i've posted on this site so please be patient for any gaffs!
I've just bought my first BMW, an 06 reg, 320d automatic tourer. So far i'm delighted with it but i'm trying to find out what the colour of the car is and where the paint code label is situated beacause i want to buy a paint chip pen/kit. I've looked on the internet to try and find a match but none come near to my colour (a very bright red).
I would be very grateful for any suggestions.
Many thanks in advance.

I think it should be on one of the strut top turrets under the bonnet mate.
If you still cant find it you can order a paint stick from the dealers with the chassis number and they will look it up for you. I dont think they are that expensive from BMW :thumbsup

Just as Steve says. Then you can look it up from this CHART. From the sound of your description I think you might have Colour Code 438 - Electric Red :thumbsup
You forgot to mention that you were re titling the thread to comply with forum posting rules:hihi Whilst I was sneaking in my reply:rofl

Went to do the title and noticed you'd beat me to it:thumbsup
