Does anyone have experience of using this kit? Need to order one in Alpina Blue so any experience of the kit with Individual shades would be particularly helpful.

I used one for the bonnet on the D5 in Sapphire black metallic to do the stone chips. It needs a little practice to get good results but colour match was excellent.

For the larger chips I used a number of layers of paint and left it proud. I then rubbed it down with 2000 and 3000 grit wet and dry and polished out with a DA.

Then polished the whole bonnet and waxed it.
