    I got mine from one of the recommended panel beaters on Peugeots web site. Graeme Cuthbert.

    Make sure you get it from a dealer. My brother works as a spray painter at a panel beaters shop. He had to do a job which involved respraying a panel on a 206cc - Aegean Blue. He said the colour was very hard to match, he has been a spraypainter for twenty years so he knows what he's doing. He had the good sense to keep some in a touch up container for me.

    PETER: Yeah

    BRIAN:
    No, i dont think they've ever done that

    From a dealer. They sell a little 2 bottle pack. One is the colour and one is a clear coat (for metallic/pearlescent colours anyway).

    I bought one for the last pug (Diablo Red) and it was $7.95 or something similar.

    They'll want your VIN and the trim code of the paint, which I believe is 3FM0 (I've got the same colour )

    thanks everyone. i dont have any chips yet, but im sure i will do, car is 13 months old now.

    out of curiosity, if i scratch the car, can i use touch up paint? I know to spray a scratch is about $400 for most metallic paints (depending on scratch size). If the scratch is past first layer, but not down to metal, and wont buff out, can one apply touch up to the scratch? ie with a tooth pick not the brush as its too thick, and then sand it down level, polish then apply clear coat.

    not sure how legit this method is, but i read it somewhere on a DIY forum.

    my crusier has a scratch that I wanna fix up, but as is on the roof, dont want to pay that kind of money as its not seen that often.
