Silver Hammerite is the answer to your question :)

It is near identical in colour and works really well on the engine and the frame.

Best stuff ever, apart from wonder wheels that is :roll:

Cheers

Engine paint

Hi, is it under warranty? mine had paint peeling from the left side casing - seems that the coolant had leaked at some stage!

Local BMW garage replaced casing without question along with auto fold in mirrors when I reached 70ish mph.

It may be worth a try

Ah, so it's not just my mirrors that retract like the wings of an F-111 when I reach 90 or so. Doesn't help me, but it's reassuring to know it happens to others!

I had the same problem on my offside mirror, I cured it by
loosening the top nut then spinning the mirror arm 360 degrees
and then re tightened. The paint has come of the nut but apart
from that everything is fine now.
