Most O reilly's has a machine that can give you matching paint as long you have your paint code.

My spoiler was vandalized and I had to buy a replacement on ebay. The body shop quoted me $200 to paint the darn thing, so I decided to take the risk and did it myself. I couldn't find those rattle can paint locally and bought mine online from www.touchuppaintonline.com. The color match was really good and it took a couple days for it to get to me. 1 can is probably enough to probably paint 3-4 spoilers. When you do use the spray paint, just make sure to spray really thin coats. I made the mistake of spraying too much and paint was running in several places. Ended up having to sand it and redo.

depending on the age of your car, paint fade can be an issue for exact match touch up.
