Paint Info

I have a graphite grey LT that needs the right mirror cowling painted. Is BMW the only source for this or there an aftermarket spray can I can use?

Re: Paint Info

Any paint shop can match the color or are you just looking for a spray can? I think there are sites out there that can create a can of this color.

Re: Paint Info

I just give the paint code to my guy and he gets it done. He has painted everything but the '91 and it is probably going in within the next month.

It's been a great local shop, many times he's done parts overnight for me, they realize they don't make $$ if they don't do the work.
