: BASF (German) is a paint system used on BMW and Mercedes-Benz automobiles. You will find some body shops use the BASF system in lieu of PPG, Dupont and others. I would suggest the BASF system so the colors and clearcoat will be as close to OEM as possible.

Thanks for the insight Bob...I looked at the touch-up work today and the 2 scratches (one above handle and one under) were still noticable to me. ( in the shade and up close anyway) Dealer body shop guy said he would submit a repaint cost as part of the insurance claim, and if I decide I wanted to paint it -he would do it for me. I think I need a few people, and days to look at it in all degrees of light in order to decide. If the use the BASF, then I may have him paint it. Anyway, thanks.
