Paint Matching
on: May 28, 2018, 09:44:28 PM
Hi,
 Noticed this was subject was covered in 2016 with no real answer.

I am looking to get my plain grey/silver panniers and topbox colour matched to my bike. Its a pity they only done this with the red ones but hey ho.

I have the new Motorsport colour bike and I was wanting to match the cases to the Blue tank.

I was wondering if anyone knows the code or where its located. I'll call the dealer tomorrow and see if they know it.

Just thought maybe someone here would maybe know.

Thanks Dave

Interesting enough, my dealer, BMW Park Lane in London told me a while back when I ask about painting something on my old S1000R that they don’t do motorcycle painting even though they do car painting.
I’ll ask again about painting my panniers and top case ocean blue but in case they don’t do it, any ideas which would be my closest option to do this at?

I'm about to spray a new hugger for my XR and was given the paint code M42 for racing Blue Metallic from my dealer, hope this helps.
Cheers,

A code will do nicely.

Just need to confirm that its 100% my tank colour now.

cheers Dave
