Default Touching up Gold BBS Wheels

Has anyone touched up rock chips on stock BBS wheels? Does Subaru sell the correct color? I'm thinking about buying a set that has a few rock chips.
Thanks for any info..

You can buy paint that matches the BBS wheels. Do a search. I've already posted a few times.

I'll try seaching again. I didn't come up with much last time. Most of the links were too old.
Thanks

Go to your local body shop and ask really nicely if they can whip up a tiny batch of touch up paint for you that matches. The applicator they use (looks like a mini Q-tip) is much more precise on small chips than the brush that comes with touch up paint or nail polish. Then you will not have to try to come up with any stories about how you are not actually trying to match your finger nails to your wheels.

Default Thanks all.. I've got a couple good leads

I forgot about an old friend of mine that has a large auto body shop. He's got one of those automatic paint matchers, kind of like Home Depot but for car paint. Duh, I'll go visit him. The price will be right
