Dr. Colorchip review
 
So most of you probably can't tell from pictures but the front of my E36 has quite a massive amount of stone chips. I already decided getting the front end painted is a waste of money because it'll just look the same after 2 years anyway.

So I decided to order Dr. Colorchip after reading some great reviews. Tonight I just gave the nosepanel a shot and wow what a difference. I only applied 1 coat so far.

I'm going to tackle the bumper and front of the hood tomorrow. Then depending on the amount of paint left, do a second coat.

do you have to order it from them or can you get it somewhere in toronto?

i guess 39-59 bucks$?

doogee 04-16-2011 02:22 AM

I got the big kit which came to $75 shipped. Pretty sure you have to order it off their site.

Still havent even gotten to the bumper or hood and it looks amazing!

AlpWhitE46 04-16-2011 11:46 AM

VSanj 04-16-2011 05:13 PM

damn what an improvement!

Steve30 04-16-2011 05:19 PM

wow I just watched the video on youtube. I'm going to order the kit

fitter527 04-16-2011 06:35 PM

i'm gonna do the same

Looks good. Any close up pictures? Is it level with the rest of the paint surrounding it or can you still see that it is below ?

Steve30 04-24-2011 08:25 PM

judging by the youtube video it still looks like its below but its still worth it. I wish they would've used a color match or dark primer for the darker colored cars... It sucks having a stone chip and seeing white behind a nice dark paint job.

doogee 04-24-2011 10:59 PM

Yeah if you look really closely you can tell the chip isn't "filled"

You need need to be pretty damn close to tell. I'm talking your face right in front of the chip lol.

I still need to find some time to get the bumper and what not done.

slemmer 04-25-2011 01:52 AM

it does look very good. I wonder how resistant it'll be from future road rash.

T.Dot_E30 04-25-2011 08:47 AM

Did you buy the $39 kit or the $59 kit?

They rip you off on shipping $18 to Canada, plus we'll probably get dinged with taxes/duties.

Hmmm, in for more details...
