I'm interested in hearing reviews also.

I used it on my Carbon Black E46 and it works very well. Extremely well actually
Do it in a warm climate and teh pain bonds into the spot you touched up. than you use their step two chemical which wipes away any excess surrounding touched up area and over and you can barely notice under direct light where you touched up

I was really impressed with the stuff. I rubbed it over the hood bumper and fenders and it covered up a ton of rock chips. Obviously it will never replace getting a full respray but is the perfect alternative for smaller sized nicks here and there. Not sure how it would work on lighter cars, but if it worked on a metallic finish, a flat white should be no problem at all

I have used it for both a white car and Space Gray. It does work well. Just take your time with deep chips.

I've used Langka which is similar to Dr. Colorchip. Works great but you fill 1 chip at a time, major PIA.

Dr. Colorchip seems a lot easier since you just smear the paint over a larger area.
