Halfords BMW Black Sapphire Scratch & Chip Repair Kit
The Halfords BMW Black Sapphire scratch & chip repair kit is compatible to BMW manufacturers code: 475.
The touch up paint is the ideal way to repair small unsightly scratches and stone chips on your cars bodywork, blending them in with an exact colour match.
Simply use the special glass fibre prep tool to remove any loose/flaking paint and all rust from the chip or scratch. Then apply the high build primer filler using the precision nib applicator or brush into the prepared rust free chips and scratches, building up the thickness in stages (leaving 10-20 minutes between coats) leaving 24 hours to harden.
Lightly rub down using abrasive side of special tool to achieve smooth finish, then apply your colour match using the precision nib applicator or brush to the prepared and primed chips or scratches. Build up the colour in stages by leaving 10-20 minutes between each coat*. Leave the paint for 24 hours to harden then simply buff the surface using fabric side of special tool to blend in the repair.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.Rated 1 out of 5 by MartinB2016 Waste of time The little sanding/buffing tool lasted about 5 minutes before it was unuseable. This wasn't a major problem as a few cm of 1500 or 200grit wet&dry can replace it. The main problem was the applicator were you use the nib or brush applies too much paint and then when you try to level it the paint buffs back out of the scratch so basically all you're doing is damaging the clearcoat around the scratch and getting nowhere. I've applied the paint about 10 times now and whilst it's gradually filling the scratch the match is very poor indeed. I'm actually going to give up and get a body shop to fix it. Whilst this repair kit is far cheaper than a professional job the fact it doesn't atually work and the actual cost in your time make it uneconomical. 12 November 2016Rated 4 out of 5 by Faraj Great kit for small jobs Speedy click and collect service. Competitive price and just the job for small chips and scratches. 31 October 2016Rated 1 out of 5 by JM86 Not worth buying This product isn't worth using. I'd get scratches repaired properly in future which I had to do anyway. The 'abrasive' part of it isn't at all abrasive, you end up with grey primer over your car with no way of smoothing it off. It actually made it look worse. 30 June 2015Rated 1 out of 5 by Holly20 Not worth the money! This product didn't work and looked like someone had painted the side of the car with poster paint! Would not recommend! Now having to pay a garage to do it properly on top of this! Save yourself the hassle! 02 September 2014Rated 4 out of 5 by GerardH Happy to recommend but applicator a little limited I can recommend this product with the exception of the applicator. You have a choice of a very fine nib or a "brush" that is only a millimetre or so wide. Neither are very helpful for covering areas wider than a hair's width, so I had to use a cotton bud. Otherwise, a useful back up set to keep nicks and scratches in check. 10 September 2013Rated 4 out of 5 by CarUser2 Helpful but not accurate The product was easy to find and collect from Halfords using the reserve and collect service. The product is all in one and the colour matches well. The application brush and nib work but are not entirely accurate to an average user. 07 May 20111-6 of 6
