Hi,
Anyone knows what is the best pen to repair the scratches on the car body?

Look to Bavarian Autosport. They have one.

What is the different between touch-up paint and clear coat and in which case I should use each? There are some small scratch on my car. So which one I should use for? Thanks

BMW typically has 3 layer of paint on top of bare metal.
prime, main-color and finally clear-coat (a transparent paint).

applying touch-up is really patching the second layer to mask off the paint-chip (the contrast of the light color prime along the dark color is so obvious this proces tries to make it less obvious).

For bigger job, you may have to re-apply clear-coat but I'll leave this to the pro cause you may introduce ueven thickness and shown as blemish; not something I am willing to do on the hood or big flat area for example.
