    Get a touch up stick for it as these chips away guys mix the colour themselfs and never get it quite right but in saying that the touch up i got for mine from vx wasnt the greatest match due to the colour varients from factory that there are on the arden blue vx's.

    Marc one of the mods on here did a thread bout touch up to paint i think have a wee search or contact him, he's pretty much god when it comes to detailing!

        I have used the halfords one, I am a bit heavy handed, but looks ok and much better than leaving it. Just take your time and dont rush..
        Used to own: Arden Blue Astra VXR.

        Now own: Silver Corsa VXR.

          my local dealer's workshop give me a touch up stick for my arden for free as their sprayer chris is a top top guy (outstanding) and i done mine with that . Although the colour is a perfect match and even with a very steady hand you will not get it perfect but it is good enough for the naked eye and much better than looking at white primer.
