Touch-up for Tornado Blue

Hello all,

I've tried doing a search in Google but can't find any results for Tornado Blue (MITO) touch-up paint. Do you guys have any idea if there's such a thing?

Thanks!

Ring a dealer to find out if it is available to order

As always David, such a helpful reply.

This is the detailing section you know. I thought I'd ask here first as surely you can buy them online. I just don't know where...

Well if there isn't a Part No. on the Alfa system you won't be able to get an Official Touch Up Pen for the Mito anywhere :HEADBANG:

Hope that was helpfull enough for you

An online dealer would be your best bet. With a new colour it's always best to go for official touchup pens until some other guinea pig works out if the unoffical pens are good or not. If the colur has been available for a while I would use paints4u, they're usually very good and reasonably priced.

That was my point The first point of contact should be a dealer especially for new colours as in the past there have been problems getting official touch up pens for new colours as Alfa have had delays in releasing them.
No point trying to find them elsewhere is they haven't yet been released


TBH I can't see why the OP would have issues asking a dealer in the 1st place though

For some reason the OP doesn't want to ring a dealer

I posted here in the hope that someone might know, or might have already bought a touch-up stick online.

90% of the posts on this entire forum would not exist if people just 'called the dealer'. This section of the forum is specific to maintaining the car, hence why I asked here.

I'd also like to remind you David that a forum is free to use, as opposed to calling the dealer. There's a vast source of information and knowledge at our disposal on the website and I think it's sometimes worth asking here first incase anyone has an answer. And I certainly have had many answers without the need to call the dealer.

Try this, I got my touch up paint from them, easy to use site you should be able to find whether they have what you need.

And my point has just been proven perfectly by ADF.

Thanks very much ADF!

Plenty dealers both on AO & elsewhere who you could have contacted via PM/email for free if you didn't want to ring them to find out if the item was as available

Perhaps I could have said "contact a dealer" but I didn't think I needed to.


Anyway did you find what you were looking for in ADF's link ?
