Hi aridon1,Did you find a good match to the Bianca white?
They have recently re-surfaced all the roads around us with chippings

Now have a nice chip on the bonnet that needs sorting.
Thanks

I was given a touch-in paint kit by my dealer free of charge.

Your dealer should have the correct paint available.

Incidentally; I never use the supplied brush to apply the paint. I find a cocktail stick is much better as you can apply the tiniest amount and build it up if necessary.

Really! Did it come with when you bought the car or did you ask for it afterwards?I was looking at chipex, but read mixed reviews online. My dealer was a Robin's and Day.
Thanks

When I went in to pay the balance I said I needed some touch-in paint for it "just in case".

When I went in for the handover he gave me the keys and the paint; the paint was with their compliments.

Halfords had the exact paint and it was a good match
built it up in stages and it looks good now, unless you know

If someone goes into a car wash in a mud-caked car and if you're next then you can expect a pretty good beating with grit laden brushes.

I have seen sections of torn off aerials going round in the brushes.

I had a neighbour who always used car washes and his car looked like it had been cleaned with a Brillo Pad.

Another place I would never go is those 'hand wash' facilities.

You spend a few minutes watching and see how many times the drying leather gets dropped on the stony/gravelly floor then picked up and straight onto someones previously unscratched paintwork.

....and those charity/bob-a-job washes by school kids!!!!


No thanks...I'll do it myself!

Some petrol station car washes are lethal & I will imagine they will probably do more harm than good truth be known. Yes it is probably best you do it yourself <img src="http://www.2008ownersclub.co.uk/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif" align="middle" /> Edited by: bigbird25059815
