if you get the langka all you really need is the 'blob eliminator'. what i have done in the past: after you wash the car, clean the area with IPA (isopropyl rubbing alcohol...sold at drugstores) to completely remove any wax residue. then just fill the chip with the bmw touchup paint, let it dry for 2 hours, then come back and lightly rub it with the blob eliminator. the clearcoat afterwards is optional. its basically a superfine polish that levels out the glob of paint making it level with the surrounding surface. it makes it completely unnoticable and doesnt mar the surrounding factory paint.

also good if you rub up against a painted surface and mar your paint, it removes it completely.
