Ferric grey 2 supplies and code.

Post by davidgriffiths » Mon Mar 20, 2017 10:31 pm

Managed to scuff my wheel on the weekend, on a kerb that I had spent the previous 3 days ensuring I didn't hit....

So.. we've all heard how elusive the ferric grey 2 is on these 140 wheels.

1. Has anyone bought a genuine tin of paint from BMW?

2. Does anyone know the paint code for said paint?

I know a very good bodyshop so it won't be going to the stealers for a repair!

Hoping to get a factory colour rather than make it off the scheme!

I got this one - couple of scuffs on one alloy and blended in really well. Used a fine brush rather than the one attached to the lid to apply.

Im a painter at main dealer bmw bodyshop and we dont even stock the tinters to mix b55 ferric grey 2 As there so expensive from bmw

We use as an alternative bmw sterling grey the code is 472. We have a shade of this wich is a 95% match to ferric grey so if you struggle to get ferric advise your bodyshop to use sterling but check the couple chips to find a good shade of sterling grey (we use the yellower shade)

Hope this helps

Dare I admit this but I got some mixed today at Halfords and it looks like a pretty good match to me.
