Paint match for LeMans Blue at Lowe’s?

So we went to Lowe’s to get some paint for my sons dresser and had a blue in mind. Grabbed a few spray cans of this nice blue and went home and got to work. In the midst of my hard efforts to give his little dresser a new attitude something dawned on me.....this blue looks almost exactly like my SAV. So I took my overspray catcher over to the X and “holy smokes Batman!” Now I’m not saying it’s a perfect factory color match but it’s darn close. I think it would pass muster for possible trim pieces, nuts and bolts, etc..... here are a few pics......Name:  IMG_4830.jpg

If you ever need to fit a dresser into your x I'd say you are good to go! LOL.

Lol. I actually picked up that dresser with the X. I've had dressers, tables, chairs, even picked up a washer and dryer (separately) in the back of my X! It does have a big ole butt!

I picked up a new dishwasher last year about a week after my wife got her '13 X5. Not sure if it would have fitted into the '01 but I did do some large dump runs with it back in '08 when we were moving.
