    I bought some touch up paint (the pen) from the dealership and I find it sucks big time. Even when I was wiping the area after a few days the paint was coming off, where do you guys buy your touch up paint? I figured I'd buy it from the dealer just to match the colour but it must be cheap quality paint or something. Help needed!!

    Haven't had any problems with factory touchup paint....

    Did you clean the area up good with alcohol (or other) before applying it?

    I also use www.langka.com
