touch up paint?

Hello everyone, i went to my BMW Dealer for a little bottle of touch-up paint (Imola Red) and they wanted $35.00..! Incredible, i've been searching Autozone and such, their prize is $5-$7 dollars, but no luck, any suggestions..?

Check out Autovisuals http://www.autovisuals.com/paintcode.asp as an option to the OEM stuff.

I tried it last year on a tip from Lemans, and it worked perfectly. Color match was excellent and it was very easy to apply. It was about $22 shipped I believe.

http://www.eagleday.com sells the factory BMW touch-up kits with the clear-coat and all for 18.95 plus shipping. I got one from them and it was perfect.

It never ceases to amaze me what some 'stealers' charge. I suggest finding a new dealer. We have to put actions behind our complaints.

My last two BMW's and my '03 Pathfinder all came with touch-up kits. My 06' X3 came with nothing. I was wondering if it was because I had it delivered to Germany.
