blauschwarz 490 paint help needed
Visiting from theE24 board. I'm trying to find paint for my 85M635. It is special lacquer blue-black. I know that it was also on some euro M5's. Anyone got this color on their car? Better yet, can anyone tell me where i can get this color?

I think that I have the same paint on my '84 M635. Doesn't seem to have any blue hue to it though....found out the paint code through a local BMW dealer, who looked it up through the VIN#.
U-490...."Special Paint" was all he could tell me(sure does look like a basic black, at least on my car). He also said that BMW was not importing any more Touch Up Paints until they were able to put some warning label on the paints (due to some California disclosure law). I am trying to work it another way....through a paint chip chart from BMW from the 1984 model year. Hopefully I'll get a match, and then I could get another source other than BMW.
