Having multiple black cars in the garage I've done a bit of "triage" to the inevitable scrape and stone chip.

If you are wanting to do something yourself that's actually pretty easy.

First realize only you can see the stone chip ..... it's not visible to anyone else from more than 10 feet away.

Second, "do no harm" ..... don't do anything crazy like rattle canning with spray paint!

Google up some Black Sapphire Metallic touch up paint (Amazon or a BMW supplier) and throw away the brush that comes with. Use a toothpick or an artist brush to fill the hole and it will disappear.

Our cars are not going to rust in Atlanta unless you spill a "con sal" margarita on the chip spot!
