The first year of the Buick Verano was 2012. If you have had it that long then you know how easy it is to have chips or scratches in your paint. If you have had your car that long then you also probably like it and you want to keep it. It would take a pretty good deal for you to part with it because of all the memories you have made in that car. It is possible but it is probably not something you think of often and even if you did there is still one key that you and other people who love the car and want to keep it have in common. You want to preserve the value you have in your car. The best way to do that is to use genuine OEM GM Buick Verano touch-up paint for your 2012 model Verano.
We mentioned OEM already but we assumed that you know what OEM means which you might not know. It would benefit you greatly if you did know the difference between aftermarket paints and genuine OEM GM Buick Verano 2012 paints. OEM means that either the vehicle manufacturer made the part or the company that the vehicle manufacturer trusted to make the part for your car when it was produced is sending it to you. We have talked about the hamburger similarity before in another post but it works again here. If you picture a chef making a hamburger and they buy parts of the hamburger from a certain purveyor then you can also buy from that purveyor. The automobile industry would call this OEM. You buy the parts from the same source as the chef and the quality is going to be high or just as high as the chef gets. If you are thinking about OEM in the automobile industry then that is exactly what it is. The chef could grow his or her own tomatoes but they probably do not and you can buy from the same source as they do. The good thing about OEM in the auto industry is that the part or accessory has to meet or exceed the standards set forth by the vehicle manufacturer. You get quality, it fits, and it is essentially the same part or accessory you would have gotten if it was already installed when you purchased the vehicle.
Aftermarket paints are made by companies outside of the vehicle manufacturer or companies that they trust to make the paint for them when they made your vehicle. Aftermarket paint companies police themselves and do not have to follow the standards set by GM or Buick. It does not mean they are bad quality right out of the gate it just means that they could be good or bad quality depending on the manufacturer. If you choose to go with an aftermarket paint dealer then you might ahve to do some legwork to find a trustworthy company. You might luck out and find a good one on the first try or you might have to go through several. The thing to keep in mind is that you might have to spend a lot in touch-up paint to find the right one who has the right paint for your 2012 Buick Verano. If that is ok with you then you can do that but you must also think about how much paint you might have to sand down if you get it wrong the first time. It could end up costing you a lot more in time and money if you have a hard time finding something that will suit your needs.
The last thing to think about is that there are, currently, seven different types of touch up paint available for your car. You can easily flub a number on your paint code and accidentally get another paint. It is not unheard of to do such a thing and the best thing to do is to be extremely careful when you write down your paint code. The other thing you can do is use a system that allows you to select your paint without needing a paint code. Obviously, the second choice is probably best because writing down the right paint code can be difficult due to location, damage the area with the paint code, dirt, or other situations that could hinder your ability to write down the code correctly. If you can, use a system that allows you to find your paint code without the need for any paint codes.
