    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.

    Mine was about a fiver too give or take

    i got touch up paint from paints4u, they do a kit mixed to yous exact colour for about £12 that includes an artists brush, a cleaner for before you paint, a laquer for on top of the paint, some fine grade wet and dry for flatting back if needed, and maybe a few other bits and bobs

    Sprint blue is a rip off and you dont even get it in touch up form!! 2 spray cans!!!!

    I can imagine the carnage of a halfwit trying to "spray" in a stone chip!!! Oh no!!!!

    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.

    Very helpful thread, thanks for the part number :) Just ordered one from my dealer, £6.52 and they have one in stock! Not always stealers.
