Hello all. First post. Just purchased a used 6 series and would like to repair a few paint chips around the console and electric window switches. Anyone have any ideas where to find paint or similar product to repair/match these chips. Thanks for any ideas.

try finding a interior repair specialist, or go to an automotive paint store, and they can match the interior paint for you.

[Here***8217;s a fix for the chips. Take isopropyl alcohol on a q-tip and dab in only in the rock chip or scratch a few times. Take a clean towel and dry the paint chip. Take a match out of a matchbook. Use the opposite end of the head. Dab this in touch-up paint. (Do not thin out touch-up paint) Very carefully dab a very, very minute amount in the chip. Do not get any paint anywhere other than the chip depression. The trick here is not to try to fix the chip in one application. Do this every day until the paint in the chip is even with the rest of the paint surface]. Sal Zaino***8217;s method

If you do this correctly, you will hardly notice that chip repair and the colour will match
