    It's not bad, but seems to be alot more glittery than standard bodywork

    I have only ever used it to paint, grill, boot strip, exhaust surround, calipers, lower splitter and all looks good!

    However I wouldn't use to to spray a whole panel!

    I did my eyebrows with it (no, I'm not Groucho Marx) and on something so small it's fine, if you look really closely in bright light and at just the right angle you can see a difference though.

    What is it you're planning on spraying?

    Isn't the Vx can the same price or less than the Halfords one? If so you may as well get the Vx one if the Halfords one is a smidge different.

    I would say no, i found the colour match stuff they make up in halfords to be a better match and i prefer the nozzle for spraying on them too
