That water based stuff is called waterborne paint. Its a new environmental thing that the government made. All the body shops have to use it. My VW is getting resprayed with waterborne paint. I'm sort of curious how its going to turn out.

You can try Car Quest/Car Kraft. I used them to match my hood. The paint type I purchased was acrylic enamel (single stage paint, no clear) and its pretty much dead on. I had to do a load of wet sanding though because I didn't setup the gun properly and my hood turned into an avocado lol. The color of primer also changes the tone of the paint too.
