When we had the XF sprayed we bought a 4l tin. Can't remember how much was left. Same as when the AU was given a freshen up.

Depends on your experience really.. i can do it with two litres of colour.. less if its just a caryard job lol
the paint to some degree for instance yellows dont cover as well, thin it out too much and the paint is lifeless
