Paint Codes For BMW
BMW paint codes normally have three
digits, and sometimes have a slash followed by a fourth
digit. Paint code tags are normally placed under the
hood and either on one of the strut towers or fender
edges such as position one and two. The paint color code
can also be located on the right side and slightly lower
then the fender on the engine wall. 472 is the
color code for this BMW and 275 is for the other one.
The name of the car color is also on the same tag. I
have seen them spelled out in both English and German.
