Wax and polish don't help with preventing rock chips, you'd have to get a clear bra done.

I've heard good things about Dr. Colorchip but never used it. I have some of the BMW touch up paint and I think the brand is called Lanko or something similar. I've never used it though. I need to get a chance to really clean the car and give it a good detailing after I repair the few chips I have.

Post a picture of the chip if possible. I can show it to our bodyshop painter and get back to you with the best approach.

Dr. Colorchip requires many passes, at the first pass you will just color the chip the body color, it will take a few hours or days to get it close to get it leveled, even then it will probably be a different color, depending on the size of the chip, and location, from two feet away you won't see it, Dr. Colorchip is a great cheap option, and very easy to apply and remove.

Dr. Colorchip is really for tiny chips, nothing too deep. The old school kit is tricky, and requires multiple passes as well.


With touch up kits it's all about your threshold of what you are willing to accept and live with.
