OEM Wheel touch up paint

I had my new tires mounted and the machine made a small chip near the center BMW logo. Anyone know where I can find some OEM wheels color paint?

I also had marks put on three of my 261's when the installer mounted my new PSS' the other day. I am also seeking this answer. They indicated that the wheels had been refinished previously (by prior owner or dealer where I purchased) and that the paint came off when contacted by the machine. I am skeptical, but they are reputable, so?!?

Here's a DIY for something a little more severe, but it might help: http://www.autopia-carcare.com/realwhda.html

That is a GREAT write up, however I am just looking for a paint stick like the OEM set. My chip is VERY small. It is a good start though for sourcing a color.

I ordered a wheel paint pen from bavarian auto. They did not specify the color, but did require I put my make/model in to add it to the cart. Cheap enough at 17$ to hope it matches.

That's what I figured... Good luck with the paint pen.

Let us know if it worked out for you... Maybe before and after pics?
