I need to find the correct colour paint for my '92 520i. Can anyone point me in the right direction, e.g. website etc.. ? (It's a kind of metallic light blue).
I always thought that the colour scheme would be on a plate under the bonnet - if so, whereabouts because I can't find it ?
Thanks.

you can also call a bmw dealer and give them your vin. they can look up the paint, interior, options, etc. that your car had when it was new.

i got a tube of touch up paint at bmw for $7.

good luck.

Thanks all - using your advice, I've found the colour scheme.
Out of interest, it's glacier blue.
