Paint Match

Hey guys, I just bought a pair of eye lids for my car. I was wondering if I can use a regular brand like duplicolor to paint them black...? I have a 2011 Jet Black 135i. Will it match well? Or is there another brand you recommend? I dont want to spend too much but I want it to match well.

if you are trying to match the color on your car then try this site. This is where i get all my touch up paint. They offer it in a spray too.

$30 for a match. I just bought a cheap can of paint for a Cub Scout project for my son and spent $7. Please buy the correct color first it will look so much better and be cheaper in the long run. If you can't swing the $30 now then wait.

Yeah I guess you're right. I'll just buy from the website.

Don't know for sure if I'd trust that ebay one, but it does say 668 which is your OEM color code.

and so on and so on
Google 668 bmw paint gets a ton of hits like these. Best of luck!
