    I have a couple of chips on my MGM that drive me crazy. Looking at this product, but not sure about it. It looks like color matched filler without metallic flakes. I could probably get the same effect from a box of crayons, but I am intrigued by the product.

    I bought some after reading several good reviews. I haven’t tried it yet but it does have metallic in it.

    Yes, the stuff is great and easy to use. I've used it on my past 3 vehicles. A little weird to use the first time but it's awesome. The little bottles of paint only last a year or so, so I would get the smaller amount if you only have a few chips. I like having it on hand to fix any chips as soon as I see them. Good luck!

    Seen several people use it over the years and had good results. I do not have any experience with it though

    It works great! Just watch some application videos before hand. Its the best chip fix out there if you ask me.

    Same, good stuff! I recently used it on my wife's Kia and have used it on my Rav4. Both were a metallic color and blended in well.

    I typically let it cure hard for 2-3 weeks and then use a fine scratch remover over the area before I wax/seal the paint.

    I’ve always used those “pens” with great results. Have about 50 rock chips on my taco that are covered with touched up and still great, even after cut polishing.

    I've used it on all my cars since first trying it on my "96 black BMW Z3 years ago. Works great - easy to use.

    Its all in a perfect color match and they way you prep the chip. I have done several, fill in the chip with a filler material, wet sand it smooth and level, spread some touch up paint, bake it with a hair drier( heat gun is too much heat) then wet sand again, add clear and lightly polish. If done correctly its 99% perfect but doing it right takes time, like a few days if your willing to do it right and have the time. I have a friend who can do this and he is the best, he uses an airbrush.
