R1200RT 2011 Thunder Grey Metalic Paint Code

Postby Drumslinger » Sun May 17, 2020 9:21 pm

Need to respray pannier lids and my research identifies the following codes:
No paint code under the seat! No paint code on panniers.
Grey frame panels below the seat and on the fairing quote " Thunder Grey" but no code!
Research for the code comes up with "N44" Thunder Grey Metallic as the BMW manufacturers code which is the same as from "Colorite". However, another reputable source quotes this number as being incorrect and quotes M27 as being the correct code! Any guidance greatly appreciated.

Not sure if you have sorted this out. I needed some paint for my trike and went to the paint supply people to match it. They used a machine which scans your paint and gives the code. They then checked with their charts and spot on.

Seems to be the same colour with two different codes but I don’t know why. You could contact Advanced Paints.
