Please does Anyone know what kind of paint the touch up kit / primer is? Lacquer based?? Urethane or enamel?

Also does anyone know if the primer bottle has an acid in it?

It`s some kind of environmentally friendly crap. Don`t bother with it. Buy some real touch-up paint from an online supplier.

Thanks. What happens with the OEM touch paint when you use it? Doesn't match up?

Where do you recommend?

Nothing bad, it just doesn`t stick very well and the little kit they sell with it to blend is useless. Anything else is better. Just google for touchup paint to find a supplier.

Go to a local paint shop that can use your paint code to make some custom paint. A lot of places can take a sample of your paint (washer covers, anything that matches your paint or leave the car for the day) and they can match the oem color + oxidation to make the perfect match.

P1 paint is 3 step paint, so you may only need that color + clear coat to blend in the new paint seamlessly. Check out mad4motor's youtube channel to see how well he does cover ups and touch ups with rattle cans. Thanks to Brady'o'head for that channel recommendation!
