    Halfords kits are very good and I love the small steel knib that you can use as it allows you to do very neat and precise touchups. the 3 paint pack which is the primer, colour, and clear coat and you also get a small stiff glass fibre brush to scratch away rust etc and a small sanding/ polishing pad and it all costs about £10.50-ish. I would say its the best you can get unless your prepared to get the professionals to do it

    i touched up mine last week.... ( more than 20 tho lol )

    for the sake of what, £50-£100 for a spray....get the spray, touch ups never the same - kinda looks like tar on a black car compared to shiney paint
    I want to do my bonnet and bumper ( and maybe the rest of the car if i win some coin lol )

    There was a group buy of the Dr colourchips kits over on detailing world, some of the results looked great from a normal viewing distance. Up close it was a different story, the paint just colours most the chips to hide the white/gray primer bits so it looks like a solid colour, some were filled but not many, great for light stone chips but not so good for the deeper ones.

    I have seen some good results with the odd stone chip repair on detailing world although this involved wet sanding. I personally wouldn't risk a re-spray for the sake of a few chips unless the bodyshop was very good.
