BMw does not make their own paint. They buy it from different manufacturers just like everyone else!
Theres a guy in NY, who brought a brand new EXT.. He wanted Blue, but blue wasnt available yet.. So he bought a white EXT, and sanded it down.. He bought the blue used by BMW M3, and sprayed it himself! He took it to the Detroit Auto Show, Cadillac saw the responses from the Blue ext. And begun making the available in M3 blue..

Watch Funk Master Flex show, and youll probably see for yourself!

Good lord you all watch too much dman TV.

Cadillac only makes 2 tri stage colors, Pearl red, and Pearl white. the rest are 2 stage. The blue may be similar to Bmw's but its not exactly the same.

Now to answer your question! Open the trunk. On the underside of it there is a white sticker with a bunch of numbers. On the bottom row is your paint code. It will probably say upper and lower and have a 4 digit numer/letter code after it. The codes should both be the same because its not 2 tone.

Just take that number, put the letters "WA" in front of it and type it into a search. Or go to paint manufacturers website like sherwin williams i know u can type the code in and it will give you prices and the info from the code.

That's right GM trucks have all the info in the glove box! All you need is that code and any paint company can reference the color from that code! ;)
