Default Pre 2008 BBS Gold = 2008+ BBS Gold? Maybe a stupid question.

Are they the same? As in, if you get BBS gold touchup paint, it'll work for all BBS gold wheels?

So, either no one is sure or this is a real dumb question. Someone feel free to let me know either way.

60 views and no replies, probably means no one knows for sure.

The BBS gold looks the same for the 08' and 08' STi wheels. I know, as I had both in my garage for a while.
I couldn't tell you if the color code is the same. They just appear to be the same.

On a side note, the Duplicolor gold wheel paint matches pretty close, but I wouldn't be able to tell you if it would be good for touch up, or not.

Good luck man.
Hopefully someone will post a definite answer.

Thanks for the reply. I was gonna pick up the BBS gold paint from Grimmspeed which was supposed to match, but wasn't 100%. Guess i can just give it a shot and see what happens. I'll update with either two toned BBS wheels or an easy repair job.

no worries man.
I didn't want to spew bad info, so I had to wait until I got home and was able to dig out the 08' stockers in the basement.



Good luck.

How much darker are they?
Because I'm looking at them, and they look to be pretty damn similar.



Are my eyes going bad on me?
