Ok so this relates to the UK but maybe to other countries as well.
I have had my initiation to the wild and wacky world of BMW/Mini spares prices.
All I need was a Flame Red touch in paint stick for a tiny chip on the passenger door. There were none at the dealer, none in the UK so 3 weeks later it turned up for a total price of £21.38.
£21.38! For 12ml of paint and 12ml of lacquer!! :eek: To me that is VERY expensive - is this what I can expect in general for spares for a current car?
I checked and my kit for Mercedes Designo Mystic Blue from a main dealer in 2013 was much cheaper for twice the contents so....

Last pot I ordered was from auto paints direct. Irish but deliver within a couple of days. You may need to buy some lacquer too but any aerosol will do.
