BMW Center

Buy it from your local BMW Center...........have to be very careful when applying with the brush that comes with the touch-up paint....make sure there isnt too much paint on it......it'll run down and leave a big bubble of paint on the little mark your trying to fix.......the kit also comes with clearcoat touch up too.....follow the directions on the box..............the finished product doesnt look perfect when your up close......but from a distance you cant tell you touched it up.

The dot on the dashboard....I have no idea...sorry!

WOOAHHHHHHHH DUDE THE DOT NEXT TO THE MILEAGE MEANS THE ODOMETER HAS BEEN TAMPERED WITH, OR IT IS MALFUNCTIONING.

Someone correct me if Im wrong, but I think you need to call the dealer, explain the situation, and make an appointment. There could be legal issues involved when it comes to resale.

I really like the Plastikote products if you can find a match.

Regarding touch-up paint: You will have better results if you use a toothpick to apply the paint. Remember, a little goes a long way.
