    I recently purchased a 1998 BMW 540i Sport with the following information on the color label:

    BMW Individual - Fg.Nr. BV94953
    HELLROT
    314/4
    FUELLER ROT

    Is a difference between the HELLROT 314/4 paint color, and a regular HELLROT 314?

    FUELLER ROT translates to Ink Red, but I have no idea what it is referring to.

    I'm guessing the number after the slash has something to do with the clearcoat.
    Elsewhere I read it is the manufacture of the paint.
    Who knows? It could also mean that it is an individual color for that vehicle.
    When you buy paint, you don't see slash numbers.

    That is my fear, Steve. Someone already tried to touch up a few chips with some red of a slightly different shade, but I have no way of knowing who or what color code they used, much less the source. At this stage, I really don't have any plans to repaint the car, so it probably is moot. More a curious for now.
    Thanks for your reply.

    I received a reply from BMW Classic and they said Fueller Rot refers to the color of the undercoat. They didn't specify what the /4 stood for.
