I can never get touch up paint to look right. Someone on one of the BMW Forums suggested I buy Dr. ColorChip for my touch up paint. It's expensive but does the best job blending in with the surrounding areas. It is very easy to use. Google them if you want to know more.

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.
