    Anyone here know of a good supplier of audi paint.

    specifically i'm after midnight blue for my 1997 audi a3.

    not too fussed on the size, at the moment i only need abit for some touch up jobs, but bigger spray jobs are going to be done soon so if it ony comes in a large size i'm still interested.

    thanks for any help in advance,
    Karl

    you get touch ups from a dealer, but for larger paintjobs you need to find a local car body paint supplier who will mix it up for you. Most bodyshops have their own schemes from a generic paint manufacturer, PPG, Silkens etc, and most are water based schemes now, so not best for home use, (takes a while to dry wihtout serious heat). Most paint suppliers will use sovent based systems, and some still do cellulose paint, but it wont last long on modern panels!
    If it just a few pieces of trim, some carpaint suppliers do mixe3d aerosols, as do halfraids i believe.
