Anyone with 362 Sienna Red

Have any of you guys with "edit:" Sienna Red, paint code 362, been able to find a manufacturer or painter that sells parts in our color? I.E. painted reflectors?

Getting anything custom painted in this color seems to cost a first-born.

No chance anyone sells pre-painted parts in that color. I have Sienna Red II (362) and no one sells anything. I've never heard of Sierra Red on an E46, you positive that isn't sienna?

You are absolutely right, I'm falling asleep in class right now and apparently can't remember my own fricken car's color. I also have 362 (fixed thread title, thank you). How'd you yours done? Please don't tell me custom paint shop

Any paint shop can mix the color, at no additional charge. I had my front bumper painted at an indy shop and the rear was painted at a BMW body shop.

For the rear reflectors: black spray paint (preferably for plastic)

For the fronts: Go white... easiest choice for you.

EDIT: dirty pics, dont show the children

Perfect for your color, but I'm leaving the back the way they are, and fronts NEED to be body color in my situation. Being picky.

Before I got my mtech, I had my front reflectors painted at a bmw shop for $40. Maybe stop by some body shop and see what they can offer you? And yeah, please don't paint the rear reflectors black.

Sienna red is one of my favorite BMW colors. You don't see many of them on the road (I think they stopped using it after the 01 model year) but a definite eye catcher.

I have Barbera Red on my 7 series....it is also a different (darker) red color and looks great on the newer 3 series.

For his color, you mean? It makes them melt away pretty well into the tough plastic trim.
