Question Any close-enough red paint?

My bike came with the Hepco Becker side cases, which have a silver trim panel. I don't think these look as good as the PLX-type Givi/Kawi cases (especially when color-matched), but they're very good quality and very functional. Much better than the stock cases I had on my Trophy or Concours. I was thinking it would help the aesthetics to paint that trim panel Passion Red. I checked with Colorite, and to do it would cost about $100 for the base, color, and clear coat layers in spray cans. That's more than I like spending for some spray paint, so thought I'd check to see if anyone has experimented with any Lowe's or Advance Auto spray reds that would be close enough. Thanks!

go to any body shop and they can just get the paint code off your bike, and match it exactly, i used to be a body man, have them do it in single stage, not base/clear, shouldnt be more than 100 bucks
