Touch up paint required

Hi all, I ordered a touch up pen from my Local dealer (Blue Bell BMW Crewe England) they took the chassis number, obtained the paint code and "ordered" one for me. Two days later they called to tell me they cant supply???? Does anyone know a UK beemer dealer which can supply paint. Need Pacific metallic blue code 744 for 2001 RS

Why not visit your local spray shop supplier? You already have the 3 digits paint code from the label under the seat. My local shop used to make up 250cc aerosols in whatever colour you want if they listed it. You can still use a fine brush for small scratches.

The world is going crazy on banning cellulose based paints, so it may not be so easy now.
