Touch Up Paint on 2002 C230

I want to clear up these blemishes..especially the one in the third picture..

It's a small dent on the back bumper. I'm pretty sure someone scratched it with a key.

The car is 2002 Mercedes C230 Kompressor.

I can't seem to find the color code on this vehicle so I have no idea what color I'm suppose to purchase..

It could be two toned or Bordeaux Red Metallic...

Can someone tell me where I'm suppose to find this color code?
What is the color from the looks of it?
What do you recommend for touch up painting solution?

inside your driver side doors rear "b" pillar there is a indentification tag with the manufacturers VIN, weights, assembly and other info, to the right of the vin barcode is the paint code. C590 in this case.Youll probably have to order your paint pen. they cost $16 give or take at the dealer but they usually only stock common paint like 040 black, 744 briliant silver and whites.

dealer will give you paint code, they need the vin number, on windsheild, or on youre insurance papers. or go to custom autobody paint shop, they can make one for you, dealer around 20-25 dollars, but they also give you clearcoat, wich i dont use, to messy, depending on the chips, it maybe nicer to repaint, or take it to a detailer, see what they can do, you never know........

Did you look for the 3 digit code?????? Looks like 586 Magma Red, but pictures can be off.

That's all I see. It's from the passenger side.

I have nothing on the driver's side. What gives?

Kind of strange that you don't have the ID tags on the drivers side, but you can enter your vin at this website & it should give you the paint code.
Mercedes-Benz Club Russia | Mercedes-Benz / VIN

My guess would be Firemist Red Metallic code 548.

Mine isn't listed either. The list is probably not complete. If your looking for touch up paint, then just give them your code. Go to some of their web sites & you'll see your code listed.

Because their list isn't complete. Look here: (sort by color)

Mercedes Benz Colour Codes

Yes, that is the correct color, but it wasn't available until 2003. Your car must have been a very late 2002.
