    Hi all.
    New to the forum and to this bike. My bike is a dark, metallic blue. I am trying to confirm what the actual paint code is so I can get some touch-up paint and also get an aftermarket seat with matching piping.
    I see some codes under the seat and on the upper forks, but nothing with the VIN or anything that looks like a paint code. Where would I find these values on the bike?


    I tried the VIN decoder here: https://www.[size=78%]mdecoder.com/   [/size]
    It shows:  carbon-schwarz metallic  [/font][/size]
    My bike appears to be dark blue, but I think this black may be the correct code. I still want to know where to find the codes on the bike to be sure.




    TIA
    -Dan

      Right. I know Schwarz = Black, and I've seen the English translation appear in a couple of places.


      I really want to know where to find the codes. They must on there somewhere... right?

        My 2020 RT is Mars red, I wanted to buy some touch up paint and was informed by Wolverhampton and Chester Motorrad dealers that BMW don't do touch up paint  :alas: , if anyone can find different please advise on this thread.
