Had a great time with the Note in the Lakes http://www.noteownersclub.co.uk/forum/driving-an-auto-in-the-lakes_topic1789.html and it coped well with the hills even if it lacked a bit of grunt up some of the steeper ones.

Only downside was that I managed to reverse into a stone wall, scraping but not denting the rear bumper and part of the paintwork higher up.
First incident in over a decade of driving around the lakes for at least one holiday a year and it's in the wife's car! Must have only just scraped as like I say no dent but a deep scratch.

Simple question - do Nissan do touch up paint and where's my paint code? This is the same colour as mine: Nissan Note

Am I right in thinking this is "Intense Blue"?

Intense Blue is most certainly a Nissan Note colour (ie like mine) and they do do touch-up paint.

Fully expect that Halfords have an exact match, but cheaper imho.

Bv4 is intense blue there are 6 shades and 3 metallic matches the colour code is on the slam panel there also a guide in the body manual (not the esm) to paint codes

I got a little touch kit from paints4u come in a 100ml tin with a fine brush (I use these small tins for airbrushing things)

I touched up my bumper when something got dropped on it out the boot it only really shows up if your with inches of it tbf

It's the panel that the lower bonnet catch is mounted to, it has the paint numbers on etc

As above its the part the bonnet "slams" down on, iirc the yanks and others refer to it as a core support
On most cars you open the bonnet you with find the spec plate what gives the spec and trim levels/codes of the car as well as the paint code you may also find a vin plate (depending on the car/maker)

Get a quote off a scratch repair company, offer cash ;). For a bit more money, you will get a top job. Touch up paint is no substitute.
