Mini Touch Up Stick or Chipex?

Hi everyone,
Always used the official touch up sticks for our BMW's and Mini's in the past and had some mixed results with them, probably down to my skill as a painter more than the product I guess.

Wife has an F56 Cooper in Deep Blue and I have a Cooper S in Thunder Grey on order. The dreaded question of road rash came up last night and how to tackle it when it inevitably happens.

Before I place my order with local Mini dealer for the touchup sticks which incidentally are £20 a go, thought I would watch the Chipex video after hearing it mentioned on this forum, interesting.

Got me thinking .....

What experiences have you had with the Chipex product and is it better/as good as the touch up sticks?

Best wishes

I brought my Mum round to mine for tea the other day, and and banged the passenger door against the little wall on my driveway. I was very upset, as you can imagine, but being my Mum, you can't exactly shout and swear now can you.

Anyway, Dad works for BMW and he has a Volcanic Orange stick on order for me, and one of the bodyshop guys will apply it when it arrives. Dad said they don't actually have them made up yet, so I have to wait patiently until they do. Meanwhile there's a small chip out of the edge of my door (down to primer, not metal). :(
