I haven't used that exact kit but I have used the same method to repair a scuff on my door. The Instructions are pretty much spot on and it seems pretty good value

That's what I thought, method looks sound, just wondered about the quality fo the stuff etc.... they've got the actual alfa colour codes as well, so must be worth a punt at < £15.

I've used this kit and even the Nuvola Blue is a pretty good match. I used this kit for a couple of stone chips and if you look really close you can still see the outline of a couple but they're a lot less obvious than before. It might not be the best solution for a big scratch in a really obvious position but for the odd chip it's great. If your scratch is very deep it will need a couple of layers of the paint to build it up so take you time. If you're not sure though maybe go and see chipsaway or other bodyshop for a more professional blended in fix.
