they are the mini paint codes however i doubt the neon yellow will be included there. your best bet would be to take it to a good paint shop and ask if they can match it.

Either that or check the sticker on the back of one of the mirror caps to see if there is a paint code.

Yes they did but thats not 100% the same colour but close to it

Was going to tinker with a spare bonnet scoop i have just to see what it would look like

Just a few things going around my head, Might work out cheaper to get it wrapped if anyones got the Yellow?

It will be cheaper to get it wrapped but how well it will hold up i don't know. My bonnet scoop has a million chips in it somehow.

Good luck what ever you decide.

Pop into Halfords they have hundreads of colours they can mix, I had some mixed so I could spray my boot handle, rear diffuser and end tips of the Spoiler to match my mirror caps which are wrapped, its not identical but you would never notice with the naked eye (and I am sure it would be cheaper than BMW) thumbs up

Worth a look if nothing else Exclamation
