Question Touch up paint

Does MB make touch up paint for the red calipers?
What part number please?
What part number for polar white?
Thank you

(if you are wondering, I have a scratch on my caliper that the dealer is more than willing to correct, but would have to send out for repaint, and I am not comfy having them do all that just for a scratch. you never know what else might go wrong as a result of removal/reinstall. I also know that the touch up, if actually exists, will probably change color due to heat. I am just collecting information at this point.)

I doubt touch up paint will last long through the heat cycles a caliper generates.

Why wouldn't you let them correct it, especially at their cost? It would be warrantied and it will looks like new.

My previous car was delivered with a scratch on one of the front calipers and they replaced the whole caliper under warranty. I would press them for this rather than a repair.

1.Because lease
2.because I'd rather have a factory install scratch than repainted reinstalled set up that may create other unexpected visits.
3. I also don't care that much. Only want to avoid potential rust issues.

The calipers are aluminum so you should have no rust problems.

If it's not really noticeable I would just live with it.

But then again, some of us are picky and things like this always bother us until they're fixed.

I probably fit in the latter group.

I'm with you. I am picky but my time is worth more than back and forth with the dealer. I am a regular so if I ask they will do any of the aforementioned. I worry about issues that don't exist but may if they take apart things and put them back together, which would require additional visits. I may even find a neat little decal and cover it.
