Don't get it from the dealer, they will rape you. Get it from the site listed above, you get a lot more for your money and it's all 100% match and good quality stuff.

The dealer's touch-up pen includes the primer on one side of the pen, and the color on the other, for $14.99 + tax. IDK if the offers from the site include the primer, but if you need to buy the primer separately, and you don't have a lot of scratches, I think that the dealer is the better choice.

The dealer pen has clear, and the paint. You don't really need primer to touch something up, most chips won't make it though the clear, base, and primer. Just the clear and base. The tips of the dealer pen are shit and wear out super fast and are way too big to touch up small rock chips.

This , and its hard to use
so there was a dried bird shit on my car and i used the detailer and tried to wipe off then i scratched the paint... I tried the polish compound on it didn't work.. what would you guys do? The last resort I want to use is sand it prime, paint and clear coat..

I'm definitely going to pick up one of these pens. For $20ish for all three pens I'm down. I have some definite spots that need touched up./

dealer paint pen is prob cheaper. i paid $9 with tax for mine, guess it just depends on the area. the tip does wear out kinda easily but it worked well the first few times i used it, especially when i painted the holes a body shop left on the inside of my trunk when installing the spoiler. used it on the hood several times, and its noticeably better than just leaving them to rust. cant tell i scraped my front bumper on a mail box unless you get within a foot of the 3 scratches i left on it 2 summers ago
