Touch up paint for matte ocean blue
« on: November 23, 2017, 01:02:05 AM »
 BMW Canada tell me that there is no touch up paint for N0M matte blue metallic. Has anyone found a close match?

Just seen your post so may be too late but I wanted to colour code my panniers so went to my local auto paint mixing store, after a quick check with the local BMW retailer he came up with a code of M4E. He made me a 400ml tin but said I also needed a special black primer which I can dig out if you still need it.
The panniers came up a treat.
all the best
Nick

What do you guys use to wash and protect the Matt paint?
I bought some specialised products, but I'm not that impressed  :003:

Thanks,

Lee.

I think there was a thread a few months back on that very subject.

I remember reading it Mareng, and I did buy the chemical guys wash, which seems ok.
I bought the S100 matt protection, but it doesn't seem to do a lot. (unless I'm doing it wrong?)

Lee the products below are touted as being suitable for matte finishes.  Haven't tried them and they seem quite expensive...
