I would advise against Halfords paints too,I'd source a paint supplier or bodyshop that mix a specific colour to your car and then put it in an aerosol.If the colour needs a lacquer then they can do it at the same time.

There people on eBay that can mix colours from codes,but what they are like I'm not sure.Really you need the colour 'chipped' against the car as there are probably 3 or 4 shades of MV408.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
