Dr. Colorchip is good, but won't give you a smooth, flat finish (unless you go for multiple coats). langka is another system where you use regular touch up paint, and a special solvent to "level" the paint befire it has cured. Both work well.

You might want to take a look at THIS THREAD on chip repair with touch up paint you can get from the dealer, followed by wet sanding, compounding, and buffing. You can scroll down, I included photos so you can see if the chip is similar to yours, and the kind of results you can expect.

No matter how you go about it, I suggest getting touch up paint matched to your BMW, either with one of the kits or from your dealer. You can find the paint code under your hood, or check online where the kits are sold, many include the code and the name.
