    Does anyone here have good options for touch-up paint instead of the daft VW pen..?? Got a few decent chips on the hood over the summer and would prefer to address them with a regular touch-up brush rather than the VW pen that I currently have (which I think is getting ready to run out in any...

    previous owner tried to repair some scratches with touch up paint but its a different shade also so it looks worse than before. I got the car recently and waxed and buffed which did wonders but these spots are driving me nuts. It appears that they are very small scratches and not deep. So how do...

    All, Anyone know where to find the paint code in a 2003 B5.5 wagon? I've read in another post that this is in the trunk somewhere, can't seem to find it in my wagon. The paint pen that I bought from the dealer seems way off even with giving them my VIN. I'm going to give a...

    Im looking for a good source of touchup paint for my 99 Passat. I started looking in my local parts stores in the duplicolor paint section but the closest that I can find is the Tornado Red LY3D. Well that looked too bright so I checked around on the car for the paint code and found the...

    Anyone use one of these yet? I ordered 'one' a couple of weeks back and was doubtful about how good it would be when told VW no longer sells the touch up paint... it's a marker pen. Hmmm.... Picked it up last night and I gotta say I'm impressed. It also comes with a second marker that is a...

    Okay, I want to jump on that deal for the Votex body kit and can get the front and side skirts, plus the wagon hatch spoiler for $300. But... having a body shop paint the parts is looking to cost $400-500! I'm contemplating painting them myself using color-matched spray-can auto touch-up...

  12. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I know it's been discussed before but don't recall if there were any definitive answers last time. I have 2 cars at home (including my Passat) that could benefit from some minor touch-up. No structural damage on body... just few scratches that could be filled. Anyone know of any good mobile...

    Where's a good place to buy a small bottle of touch-up paint for a 1999 Passat, plus the plastic trim piece that goes on either side of the windshield? Are the prices on the web much better than my local dealer's? Thanks

    Just wondering if i can save some money here, not sure how much the bodyshop would charge me to paint a grill, but whatever it is im sure its too much. It can take anymore than 20min to do or even less. Can i do this my self with a touch up kit?
