$21 for touch up paint???



Was @ the dealer this afternoon to order a couple of parts for my CD changer. Asked about the Cosmos Black touch up paint stick and was told it was $21. If that's not gouging, I don't know what is. Has anyone bought it elsewhere for much, much less - CT, Parts Depot, etc?

LOL. CT doesn't carry BMW colour matched stuff. Don't why why you're so surprised at the price of a touch up paint kit from a proper dealership. To me, $21 is lower than what I would have expected it to be. I figured they go for 30+.

21 sounds more than reasonable, at least I would be willing to pay way more.

Reading the thread heading I was expecting $50, $21 is a joke.

you wanna hear price gouging? Buy an airplane. $700 for an oil filter (because it has to be FAA certified). A champion sparkplug is 60 each and an iridium is 120 each... oh and the kicker? You need 2 per cylinder, not one.
