I have a 2008 128i in Crimson Red. Somehow got a couple of scratches on the passenger door. Went to the dealership and they said that based on the VIN # my touch up paint should be Carmine Red. I argued my point and showed my window sticker from purchase that said Crimson Red; but, came home with the Carmine. Sure enough - the Carmine Red was ORANGE tinted and taking it back, they admitted it was the European Red. Then, they ordered Crimson Red and replaced it at no charge. Guess what, the Crimson Red is PURPLE - as in Barney Purple or Prince Purple Rain. No kidding. I haven't had a chance to call the dealership as we just attempted the touchup this weekend. We actually tried the paint in a small area on the inside door panel where yet another scratch was found - definitely purple. I'm not exaggerating. I can post a picture if anyone would like me to. Has anyone else had this issue with their car touch up paint? Suggestions?
