Yup, but if it's a unique color they'll have to order it from Europe. I asked our local dealer here (House of Imports).

www.paintscratch.com is a good source too. Make sure you know your paint code.

If you have a quality auto paint store, they can mix any color you want, or any color to match your car. About a month ago, I had a place called "Mullers Auto Paint" mix a quart of paint to match my car. I was going to paint my calipers to match my car, since you can see them through the rims. Another thing I backed out of, the "purest" got the best of me.
Anyway, you do need your paint code, and the shop can mix the paint to match your car, no matter how old it is. Just remember, the paint code is for the stock paint, prior to being on the road and in the sun for 20 years. There might be a small difference in the paint color for this reason.

Lancer is right, there might be some color fading here and there (hopefully not!) so it might look different. I dabbed my car with numerous spots of touch up (chips, nicks, etc) and plan to one day sand them down with very fine sandpaper, and then polish. That way there won't be any bulges. For now, the car looks like it has pimples [:D]
