Fixing little paint chips?

I have a few, 3ish, little paint chips from rocks. Thinking of fixing them. Was looking for BMW touch up paint and found this.

Anyone used this or have another recommendations?

I tried Dr Colorchip, and liked Langka better. With the former they provide the paint, I didn't think that it filled very well. With the latter you have to get your own touch up paint, which I got the OEM BMW paint, which I liked the results of better.

Indeed yes, a rash of activity on this, and lately.

If you look, you'll find what you're looking for....

It gets good reviews ..... I think the issue is are you painting a shallow nick or needing to fill a deep crater ....... paint can only so so much ....... maybe need to fill a deep hole with high build auto body primer or even mix a little dab of bondo ..... for chips use small tools like toothpicks and artist brushes and a little patience.

Mostly shallow nicks. I'd send pics but its in the shop, they are the one that found and documents them.
