Default Bristol Blues

I repainted my 409 in a non-metallic paint many years ago - a 1980's BMW colour "Atlantis Blue", not as quite dark as some other suggestions, but quite close to the original Royal Blue. You'll find darker, later BMW blues that are also attractive in plain paint. The advantage of standard production car colours is readily available paint including touch-in aerosols.

I'm considering the choice for my red 603 which I think was the same Burgundy metallic paint as yours since mine is also now back to bare metal. Burgundy Red metallic is now so commonplace perhaps it should be renamed Bermondsey Red. My latest preference is for the current BMW deep red plain paint with a clear lacquer-over finish as I'm also keen to avoid metallics because panel repairs can be a real headache.
