How can I apply BMW touch-up paint sticks to my car?

While coming out of a tight parking spot the other day, I brushed my BMW against a pole and caused some minor scratches. I went to my local dealership and picked up some touch-up sticks to try and fix it, but I gotta say, I’m a little lost on what to do. How can I apply the BMW touch-up paint?

I’m sorry to hear that you scratched your paint; parking in congested areas can be a real pain. Luckily, you can fix minor scratches easily with BMW touch-up sticks. Here’s how you do it:
  1. Prepare your car by ensuring the area you will be working on is cool and completely free of dirt and debris. Wash the area with mild dish soap or use alcohol pads.
  2. Shake the paint stick for approximately 5 minutes to mix it.
  3. Apply your base coat in even, gentle strokes along the scratched area.
  4. Allow the paint to dry for at least an hour.
  5. Apply the topcoat in the same fashion and let it dry completely overnight.
Now that you’ve fixed the scratches on your BMW, you can go back to riding in style. But before you hit the road, make sure that you have the best car insurance coverage for the lowest price by shopping with the Jerry app.
