BMW Touch Up Paint

Location of BMW Paint Code

BMW codes are hidden somewhere on the car. How anyone ever finds them, I don't understand. They an be on the firewall, on the radiator support, on the door jamb, in the trunk. You name it, BMW tried to put a color plate there. So patience is the key. When you select your year, make and model, take a look at the diagram we have under Finding  Your Color Code as the location varies by year.

The typical color code format is:


which corresponds to:

Alpine White III Clearcoat

Same Color Code, Different Name
BMW, like all manufacturers, uses the exact same color across many models and then will have a different color name for each model. It's the same paint! This is why the color code is so important to order the correct paint.

For example, 300, above we call Alpine White III Clearcoat. It could also be called White Clearcoat, Premium White Clearcoat, etc. depending on what the marketing department decided to call it.
