WHY is Designo Paint so Hard to find?

I have been searching for paint in 015U basically since I bought the car in 2015. Any advice? Nobody seems to have it!

A good Body Shop should be able to mix it for you.

A word of warning.

Your car is 16 years old.

It's colour is unlikely to match the original paint code.

You're better off doing like Dan says: getting it mixed at a paint shop.
