Has anyone tried the touch-up paint from the dealership? I bought some and will try it once the weather gets better.

Also I've read some good reviews on this: http://www.drcolorchip.com/

Does anyone else have any experience with it?

I have experience with the dealership touch-up paint for sterling grey 2012 focus. The color doesn't match 100%. Still very noticeable after putting it on. I also find that the color varies with how you shake it. Say you shake it well when you dip your brush, then you shake it again to redip but the color will be slightly darker or lighter. This might be a character of all touch-up paint though Im guessing. This is my first time using it. I posted photos of my scratch touch up earlier in this thread.

On the plus side, it's really cheap. like 12 bucks a bottle

im a senior in high school. that should explain a lot. my driver side rear panel has like 4 door dings from a single white vehicle which the young teenage girl who made them(shocker, i know) refuses to admit she did them. and at a local walmart, a very clumsy lady lost cotrol of her shopping cart coincidently loaded with 4 bags of dog food and who knows what and it ran straight into my front end, cracking one of the vertical posts of the bumper and fubarring my front grill. lastly, some guy at my school was drunk pulling out and cut too close to my left front end and left some nice white lines. i now park alone, at least 15 feet away from anyone at my school.
