Touch Up Paint

I have finally approaching the give up point trying to find a reasonable match for my factory paint. After trying several of the more well known internet suppliers (one can at a time) I finally found an excellent match from a Nevada supplier so I ordered 2 additional cans only to receive the wrong color. (same code). I contacted them and sent a color sample of the first can per their request, only to receive a much darker blend. You think they would at least spray out a sample to match what I sent, but that would be too much like good customer service. I went to a local automotive supplier and my color was not even in their computer (2000 code RJP) they all seem to have the PJP code.

Anyone have any suggestions.

...real quick, I have never used them so I can't give you a personal perspective, but on my last car (VW GTI) a lot of forum members used it and loved it/swore by it.

I have used them for years and they were the first I tried and I really did not want to badmouth any suppliers.

I actually found a good selection on ebay, have some ordered but haven't got it yet. The colors and nr's match up so I guess I'll find out soon.
