Bmw Paint Codes
Your Bmw paint code can usually be found inside the drivers side door shut on a black plate (see image). If not located here under the bonnet is another popular location it can often be found on the suspension top or at the rear of the headlamp. The BMW Mini will often have the code near the wing exposed when the bonnet is raised.
The bmw paint code is usually a 3 digit sequence. Generally it is 3 numbers but newer colours will have the format of "letter number number". Bmw's often have the colour name just below as shown in the image.
