    My 3 has the standard Aero wheels with the covers removed and the lug nut cap kit on them. I got a bit too close to a curb and scratched up one wheel a bit. Nothing serious, but I'd like to fix the paint scratches to keep it looking good.

    I called the local Tesla service center, but they said thy don't have paint for the wheels. Anyone got a paint code or know where to get touch up paint for these wheels?

    Please do a search in this M3 Forum and study the results from other members.

    I used Dupli-Color AFM0360 (sold at Amazon or most automotive stores) and it looks pretty close.

    search eBay for "Sonic Carbon" paint, near perfect match.
