Default Good source for touch up paint?

I need to re-do the bumper strips on a 2002 ES300. It is the paint code 6S5, Mystic sea Opal. I know I can get nicely matched paint from Automotivetouchup.com, but at $30 delivered it's a bit price for a couple of square inches of damage.

Any other good sources?

Thanks!

I ended up going to the Lexus dealership near me and I remember paying $15 and they had it right on hand. I would say for half the price that's a good way to go.

Automotivetouchup may be expensive but their color match is the best out of all of the touch up paint guys..... Stay away from Duplicolor because they were not even close to my Ford pick up color and I know others who had the same complaints.
Try the Lexie dealer like Lostape45 said..... May be your best bet

Thanks, I will call the dealer tomorrow.

I have had (1) excellent experience with Automotivetouchup. I got a can to re-do some lower panels on an Acura SLX I have. The paint match was perfect, and also the paint quality was excellent. I agree you cannot complain about the product from what I have seen.
