Paint code for dark graphite metallic
I have tried to search the site for this info, but can't find any help on my dark graphite color.
I dropped the bike due to a low speed turn with a flat tire that I didn't know about. The damage is just superficial paint scratches. I don't need all new parts, I just want to have them touched up and repainted. I have a body shop that only does high end cars doing the work.
My question is: what is the paint code I should be giving them? The paperwork I have refers to code 946 for the dark graphite metallic, 989 for the crystal gray metallic, and 997 for the deep blue metallic. But when I search any BMW sites or the glasurit site for paint codes, I come up empty.
I know this is a common problem for folks looking to get damage repaired instead of parts replaced. Is there a web site that can provide the information we need? What is up with BMW motorcycles that it is such a problem getting paint codes for repair work?
I would greatly appreciate someone pointing me in the correct direction!
