Touch up paint not made

I own a Koleos and a visit to the local dealers to purchase some touch up paint was met with "they do not make it for that colour"

I have never heard that one before, the parts guy did make phone call but the reply was the same.

So where do I get it from?

What is the name of the colour?
Unless it is an unusual colour unique to the Koleos I would expect it to be available. It may well be available for a Clio or Megane etc etc. if that is made in the same colour.

Failing that you can get touch up paint mail order by quoting the make/model/vin code etc. Also by quoting the paint code from the door jam most paint companies can mix paint.

Take a visit to your local motor factor. They will check the colour against a set of paint chips and then mix some up in a can. As said before though quote your paint code. Hope this helps. Kind regards Oily
