Purchase two sets so far...mixed results
December 6, 2020
So I want to be fair...the color matches from Dr. ColorChip are extremely close. Even on my 10 and 12 year old cars, the color match was impressive. However, do not expect it to work on any chips or scratches that are deep. Even attempting to layer over a few days did not yield anything other than the paint coloring the chip. Also, the blending solution is good, but with the included blending cloth, expect paint marring and maybe even scratches in the surrounding areas. It is still a great system. But even with dozens of different attempts and techniques, so areas turned out with dull looking paint. Maybe I did something wrong. But I made all attempts to follow the directions.
ProsAmazing color match Blending solution does blend paint nicely
ConsWill not work with any deep defects Time consuming to do correctly

This is my 4th kit from dr colorchips. 3 different makes of cars. Paint always matches. Covers chips nicely. You might have to repeat it a couple of times for bigger chips.
ProsGood match, decent coverage.
ConsA little spendy

Had a deep chip, took a couple of applications.
Colorchip kit for 2013 Porsche 911 Cab
December 21, 2017
Porsche was "Keyed" on drivers door. I have to add one or two more applications as the scratch went to the bare metal. So far, it is looking great. I'm sure I will get back to the original finish. Weather a little cold right now so waiting until it warms up to reapply.
Exceeded my Expectations!

This is an excellent product and really works. It's important that you get enough (but not to much) paint in the chip. The trick is to have the touch up paint slightly raised so that it can be blended perfectly flat with the rest of the paint. I found that using a finger or the supplied scraper didn't do the trick and it was just best to put the paint in, let it sit for a few minutes then remove. Also, don't let this touch up paint sit for more than 10 minutes otherwise you have to work hard to get it to come off.... I made that mistake.
it really works, take some time to practice on small chips but once you get it it works!

I bought it because I had a pretty large chip in my hood along with a few minor ones. The chip was down to the metal and pretty noticeable. I decided to buy this just to see if it does anything at all. I got it and at first thought it wasn't very good, the paint didn't look that good when i put it over the chips. I then used the blending solution and it looked MUCH better, still not completely amazing but it was bearable. I had a before picture and intended on taking an after when I left it for about an hour. When I came back outside it took me a good 15 seconds of looking for the chip again, it was almost completely vanished. This really is amazing, just make sure you mix the paint VERY well, I would highly recommend this to people, I could not believe how good it came out
ProsTook no time at all. Looks amazing. A good amount of paint for the price.
ConsNot one con

2014 Audi A5, Daytona Grey Pearl...road rash a problem on the nose area and shows as light specks through the dark color. Desperate, but not wanting to pay hundreds for a professional, I bought this kit, stripped the wax off and then lightly daubed the areas to be painted with alcohol just to be sure. Takes a lot of patience and a lot of trial and error to develop your technique. I quite using the brushes almost immediately, waste of time (and the glove actually melts by the way!). By the end I was just putting a glob of paint in the area to cover and very quickly (the paint dries REALLY fast) smearing it with my thumb all over the area (you've got about five seconds max). It's good doing it this way, but also bad. The good is you don't drive yourself crazy doing individual chips and cover quickly, the bad is removing the excess takes a little longer...use plenty of the fluid and go slow so the chemical does the work, it comes off pretty quickly. End result? I was impressed, for the price you're not going to beat it and I think, if you do it correctly, you'll be very happy with the results...I was. Recommended!
ProsVery inexpensive compared to professional painting. Very effective, really hides the chips and looks almost new. Satisfaction of doing a great job and saving yourself a lot of $$$.
ConsIt takes patience, some hard work, and is messy.

Very Good Product

Paint was a perfect match. Application wasn't as quick as the video. My touch-up of small chips required several applications to get it right. Very pleased with outcome. I would purchase again.
Great kit for smaller chips
April 6, 2015
I am overall happy with this stuff. It works really well on smaller chips and imperfections. Its easy to use and cleans up well. But don't plan on using it to fill large scratches, it just doesn't cover very well.
ProsWorks good on small stuff.
ConsNot good for larger stuff.

After reading some of the comments posted here I just wanted to throw my two cents at it. I have a Nissan 370Z and it is prone to rock chips on the nose (my third Z car). I bought this kit and after some trial and error I was very happy. It takes patience if you want the best results but doesn't everything? They include plenty of paint for repairs, but don't expect a repainted quality repair. It is way better than the paint repair pens and the stuff the dealer or Walmart sells. Just take your time and work clean and you will create a repair that only you will notice.
ProsIt works Saves your car from rust
ConsNeeds a few more brushes, but they sell more cheaply

I had a rather large stone chip on my hood and can't believe the results from a product at this price. I have a nice car and this did the trick on my Audi!

Used this product to touch up some scratches on the side of my car. Paint matched perfectly and it was easy to use.
ProsFast and easy
An effective fix for road rash

The hood looks great from far away, up close the larger bare metal chips are painted, but not completely filled in. Considering the cost and time invested, Dr. color chip works.

Covers the chips but...

The product does cover the chips, but far from fills them in. As I apply several more layers I can see the chip diminishing. Still it's a simple process and beats the way I use to do it.

Great for scratches!

Works best on scratches. Chips and "pocks" are more difficult and require multiple applications, but this was made clear prior to purchase.
ProsAbsolutely great for scratches and minor road rash.
ConsDifficult to "fill" chips.
Results are Better than expected

Used Dr. Colorchip to repair lot of chips on the hood created while passing, literally, across a gravel rain. Color matched 100%. Followed manufacturer instructions, the product really work.
Very nice results

While my initial order from Dr C-Chip had a Paint Color sent that was off (too grey-green) from matching my Summit White 1997 Tahoe's Paint Color, this appeared to not be a problem with these folks failing to properly match the color, but an apparent snafu with paint databases, and that apparently there were two slightly different hues of Summit White, dependent upon who the Paint Manufacturer was, and perhaps also what year the vehicle was? Summit White apparently is a quite common color that had been used on many different GM vehicles over a period of many many years. Anyway, the Dr C-Chip folks worked with me in a very helpful way, some samples were sent to them, and they then very closely matched my paint color. There's a small learning process, to become accustomed to how much dry time is needed, which is not very long. Within a few minute's time, the paint under normal temps was dry enough to begin leveling, and removing excess Paint with the Sealact Solution included in the Kit. The Sealact Solution IMO was very easy, and forgiving to work with, that it allows a slow, and gradual removal of leveling, and was considerably much easier to use than other Paint Touch Up Systems that I've previously tried, such as Langka. Once I learned the best dry time, and how to finesse the leveling with the Sealact Solution I was getting quite impressive final results! Some chips I had a quite hard time, going back, and trying to find where they were? From as close as just a couple feet away, many became undetectable. I highly recommend this product, it is one which I think should be in every car lover's arsenal. I give this product 5 stars.

I bought this for my husband's metallic midnight blue Porsche as a Christmas gift. His car had literally hundreds of little chips all across the front of the hood and the bumper. It looked like he had followed a gravel truck around for weeks having white "dots" all over it. He used this kit and now we cannot see those dots anymore unless we get up really close to look. It is not a brand new hood but the repairs are very hard to even notice except for the few chips where he had previously used the Porsche touchup paint from the dealer which had left little globs. Very happy overall with this product and would definitely use it again.

It works as advertised. I have used both this and regular touch up paint you order from a paint shop. This system after a couple tries becomes very easy to use. The first time you use to much pressure with the seal act solution but then learn your lesson and reapply using less pressure with the sealant or allowing the paint to dry longer before using it. Just read the directions and your set. I was hoping I could use the sealant solution with other touchup paints as well since this kit is so expensive. Unfortunately it does NOT work with competing paints or at least not with the one I tried. Understand it may not match perfectly on metallic paint but no other touchup will either.
I'm a believer!

I was totally skeptical about this product, but now I believe!! I bought a kit for my blue Odyssey and my grey Corolla. On both vehicles there were chips that absolutely disappeared! Some others were larger and deper, so you can still tell there was touch up work done, but that is fine with me. It does an amazing job and anybody can do it! I had the front bumper on my '05 Corolla XRS repainted. The problem was the front spoilers around the fog lights were not painted as well, so they were pretty chipped up. I used this product to essentially fill in the bazillion chips on those pieces and they came out looking awesome! I took 40,000 miles off those spoilers in a matter of minutes. I even had my 7 year old son helping me out and he was able to get results too! I don't encourage people to buy miracle products very often, but this is one that I think every car owner should have. It is better than a bottle of touch up paint and some sand paper, that's for sure!

This is a very good product. They perfectly matched a VERY obscure color (Jupiter Red for a 1985 Lotus Turbo Esprit - Less than 150 ever produced in this color). The process is a little more difficult than the description leads on, and the results are not quite as perfect as advertised, but nonetheless it does greatly reduce the appearance of paint chips. Will buy again for my next car.
