    Touch-up paint prices??

    Do any of you happen to know how much Audi main dealers charge for touch-up paint as I need one for my Lava Grey A3? I know they're available on ebay for around a tenner inc. delivery, but I've fallen into the trap before of ordering something like this off of ebay thinking I was getting a bargain only to find out at a later date that the main dealer was infact cheaper!!

    Take your service logbook (I think) to the dealers and they will get you the right paint to match your vehicle.

    Been there done that, now got a blemish that doesnt look right. Used it on a few chips to good effect though, just this one, must have not shook the can enough.
