    depends what for mate?
    they're good for small chips purely to prevent rust really.... but still visible. although your car is black aint it?? so they might not be so visible.

    I used one before on a white corsa, and like I said they're good to stop the rust like, but still looked like tipex!

    The touch up pens from Vx are only £2.75+VAT - and it's a perfect match - so personally - I'd go with the Vx option.
    0-60 in 6.5 secs and 48mpg- winner!

    touch up pens are good at halfords mate, I work there myself, best not to get them of shelf cause theres loads of different shades of black as daft as it sounds, if u go to parts counter ask them to have a look at vin plate on car, they will match colour code up to computer and be able to get u exact colour, ive done mine and u carnt tell difference, looks like there wernt any scratches

    I have a kit but haven't got round to using it yet... if only it'd stop raining!
    But I have used their spray, Star Silver and lacquer, on one of my wing mirrors, maybe it's cos it's not too near any other paint but IMO its very very hard to tell the difference (my fab spraying technique must've helped too)
