APEX Anthracite touch up paint

Have a small scratch on one of my EC7's in Anthracite. Just needs a small dab of touch up paint.

Has anyone found a match to the colour?

Sent an email to APEX, they were zero help, something about propitiatory paint codes or some bullshit. AKA, they have no f'ing clue.

Don't paint shops have a scanning device/ camera that allows them to exactly match paint colour? Might be a little pricey for a very small quantity. Alloy Wheel Repair on Iber Road in Kanata/Stittsville might also be able to help.

Ya, probably should have asked Mark Motors body shop while I was there.

Could also ask Alloy Wheel repair, they are at our dealership almost every day.

If you find out, post it here, please. Mine need a little touch-up too.

+1 ... Wife JUST curbed the passenger rear. She doesn't remember it ever happening. Actually believe her this time (the part about not knowing she did it), it's a super fine scratch... But -way around the entire wheel!

If we don't figure out a good match, I'll be tempted to spray mine in bronze with a 2k matte clear 😎

Well, car went into storage last weekend. Way too busy with other crap to get this done.

Will have to wait till spring now.
