Touch up paint.

Can anybody recommend a source of touch up paint Rosso Amore for a 2013 500L? The only online suppliers I can find are in the US!

Re: Touch up paint.

If you know the paint code, go to a decent car accessory/autofactors. Some of them will mix an aerosol while you wait.

They should be able to 'look up' your car colour in their books.


Have a look on Ebay .. scroll down until you see 'mixed to match your car's paint code'

Re: Touch up paint.

Thanks for that but I'm really after a touch up pen rather than an aerosol. Halfords tried for me. They found the colour code but no 'mix recipe'!

Re: Touch up paint.

Amore red is a 500X colour not a 500L shade.

Not true. My colleague also has a 500L in Rosso Amore.

Re: Touch up paint.

Oh ok. I've worked in a fiat dealer for 6 years and never seen one or heard of one.

The metallic red you get in a 500L is opera red, amore red is 1000 worth or tri coat paint on a 500x

Re: Touch up paint.

I brought the car being told it was Opera Red but the codes under the bonnet are 'VR926/A 108,108B.PRT. which come up as Ross o Amour. Is it me?

Do you have a pic of the car handy. Opera red is darker than amore red

Re: Touch up paint.

Vr108b is opera red, there's a genuine fiat touch up pen 👍

Re: Touch up paint.

Code Vr926a is opera red with a white roof- I'm assuming you have a white roof and door mirrors?
Your car is 100% opera red.

Then Bi colour paint jobs get a different paint code to confuse things.
If it was all one colour it would show the paint code for opera red vr108b.
