I have a 99 Carrera Cab and recently picked up some touch up paint (L555SP - Mirage). I live in Calgary and instead of sand or salt they use small rocks on the road in the winter (that stay around well into the nice weather). The wheels have picked up some very small stone chips that reveal a black undercoat or primer. I asked the dealer if there was touch up paint available for the wheels and he couldn't find the wheel paint. I know Loren published a blog on fixing wheel damage which was very good but there was no mention of the paint colour number. I saw in the pictures that it was Wurth Metallic Silver. Can anybody help me out with this?

I can't help you on the wheel chip situation, but I am in Calgary as well and feel your pain with the bulls&*$ rocks on the road. If you are ever in need of a Porsche coolant or hydrolic fluid top up, let me know. I've got more than enough to go around and the stuff is expensive! I've also got other things too like an oil filter wrench, jack and stands as well as DIY guides for brakes, cv boots and wheel bearings.

I'm always looking for people in the know, so I thought I'd let you know your not alone out there.

Have a good one.

I believe the Wurth Metallic Silver is the lacquer that is supplied to OEM manufacturers for German autos (Porsche, BMW, Mercedes, VW). I got some from here and it does match the original factory wheel color very well.

Hi and thanks for the info and website reference. Maybe I'll check at my friendly neighbourhood Benz or BMW dealer to see if they have something that might match.
