Here's what our customers are saying about our Touch Up Paint:
Craig S, owner of a 2003 BMW Z4 from Port Saint Lucie, FL
We purchased a used BMW Z4 which had a few minor dings on an otherwise beautiful Maldives blue paint. I looked for the paint code where the Automotive Touchup web site said to look and found my code (A15). I ordered both the 2oz and spray can. I did not expect the match to be so good on an 11 year old car but I must say you can't even see these dings anymore. I was only going to touch up 2 dings that were very noticeable but after seeing the results of those 2 I did 3 more minor digs/scratches.
I also had a area under the hood along the edge of the hood and along the edge of the fender where the paint had started to chip off. Since both were under the hood I wanted to make it look nice. I sanded the areas and sprayed along those edges about 3/4" along the side of the hood and the same amount along the inner fender. Areas under the hood are not clear coated so all I was looking for was a nice matching base coat. All I can say is WOW. The spray matched as well as the TouchUp.
I usually have poor results with touch-up paints but not with this product. I am very, very happy with the results and you will not regret spending a little more for a better paint match.
Thank You Automotive Touchup!

WOW. I've been using this to restore small parts on my BMW Z4. The color match is perfect right down to the size of the flakes. Don't be afraid to lay it on heavy. It flows and evaporates perfectly. Use enough basecoat to get full color coverage. The key is the clear coat. Lay it on thick and close, like 6". It doesn't run. The heavier and closer you get, the better the gloss. I just love this stuff. You could almost paint a whole car right out of the can.
