Frequent Issues About Your BMW

Where do I find BMW color paint codes?

There are color paint codes that can be found on all BMW vehicles. Unfortunately, BMW puts the codes various places. The code may not always be the easies to find.

You need the color code to confirm you get the exact OEM color formula for your model, make, year and color of your BMW.

Typically, you will need to pop the hood to find the label with the color code.

The label with the paint code can be in various places, but once you find it the color code should be in the lower left corner. Usually the code is three digits, but sometimes there is a slash followed by a fourth digit.

Can I Just Get Any Local Store Paint?

No, if you value your paint and investment in a BMW. You are looking for a paint provider whose expertise is selling original manufacturers paint colors ("OEM"), for BMW cars.

Stores should not have touch up paint sitting around, such as for an 8-year old vehicle. If they do the paint is likely not good to use anymore.

A couple expert auto paint suppliers have high tech shops required to exactly generate the perfect paint color for your BMW.

The suggested paint provider is Automotive Touchup, a Microfinish company, due to their precision capabilities and guarantee to color match your car's color, high quality paint, and affordable prices.

Painting Tips:

1. Make sure you have the right color. Do not guess. Ensure you have an exact color match paint.

2. There are three layers of paint: primer, base coat and clear coat. You are probably already familiar with primer. The clear coat helps make sure you finish with a glossy look matching your paint color.

3. Safety. Paint is toxic so make sure you have ventilation, or are outside, and use proper equipment so you do not ingest or inhale paint fumes.

4. Take your time. A rushed job can be a bad job. Allow layers of paint to dry before starting the next layer.

5. Clear the area of dirt and oil, and remove any rust before painting.
