The code is A22 for graphite. And that is awesome.

Don't know where it is on the car, but a quick Google search shows the paint code as being A22. Bavarian autosport's website confirms.

Do you have the original invoice with your car? It should be on that also.

I believe the paint code is given on the underside of the hood, near the front. I have seen it somewhere, and I think that is where it was.

Tell him to forget it. SGM is a high holy color. Only true believers received SGM.
God bless us, every one.

Phil, similar to installing the SSK, you need to get the car up on jack stands and remove the exhaust and driveshaft to determine the paint code. I believe BMW now puts the code up there.















Kidding, of course

Nice compliment for a great color.
