Touch up paint costs at dealership

Has anyone purchased touch up paint from the dealership before? How much does that usually cost?

Any other places I can find touch up paint? I've found a few websites selling them, but they're shipped from the states. I would prefer buying it locally. I've looked at [rfdlink=/forums/autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=24]Canadian Tire[/rfdlink] and Lordco already, and they don't carry the paint code I'm looking for.

call the parts dept at the dealership, they can give you the most accurate answer depending on the model of your car.
Back for a limited engagement.

$10 to $15 for bottle paint and if you want the touch up pen it ranges from $15 to $25 depending on what make of car you have.

Go to the dealer you got the car from. I always get the touch up for freee. If you spend money on a vehicle there they can throw in a few free things here and there.

if u cant, go to the dealership, they arent that expensive

The clearcoat isn't necessary, prolly messed up if you were to apply. I didn't bother when i was applying it. Can't notice the difference anyways.

It was about $8 including tax from the Toyota dealer.

I agree about the clearcoat - skip it. Putting it on only makes it look worse.
