    Default Automotivetouchup.com paint.

    This by far wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better than the OEM bottles provided by the dealer. The website offers paint pens, aerosol cans, and gallons of "ready to spray" paint. If you're good at using rattle cans, wet sanding, color blending, and following directions, this is the way to go so save $$$. Here are pictures of my rear lip spoiler and my eyelids from before and after:




    After todays paint:




    If you have to paint eyelids, lips, spoilers, mirror covers, doors, anything.....this is the way to go if you are a D.I.Y.'er. I will be painting my front lip soon. Oh and in case you're wondering...i was able to paint the lip and eyelids with 1 can of the basecoat and 1 can of the clearcoat. They each got 3 coats of base and 3 coats of clear.

    I've been very tempted to get some to try to touch up some of the scratches on my 6.

    Also, how big of a can did you use for the lip and eyelids? Pint? Quart? Gallon?

    pretty nice,


    yeah those OEM touch-up paints are BS...they don't even have the right Speed Yellow (21T iirc) any more...all they got is the pukish "Chrome Yellow" ... I once spent nearly 20 minutes arguing with the parts guys that he's a dumb-ass! Those two colors are NOT THE SAME!

    Make sure you buy a clearcoat and the basecoat. Not just 1.

    I used spray can from paintscratch.com. But it seems like its a lil bit darker that original. Next time I'll try the one that you just reviewed...
