I had a few chips on the bonnet of my 147 and did the following:
1. clean out the stone chip with IPA as much as possible to remove dirt and polish from surrounding area.
2. drop a tiny amount of paint into the chip and let it dry. Check to see if the paint is flush with the rest of the paint
3. Using 6000 grit wet and dry(MicroMesh kit - Ebay), sand the area locally until completely flush. Micro Mesh is a kit used for removing scratches and crazing in aircraft windscreens.
4. Hand polish area with a polish/swirl remover to blend in the paint
5. apply good quality wax.
Thats all I did and it improves the appearance, but will not be perfect unless you paint the panel completely.
